Some of the topics include: 

  • Industry update: it’s about transportation, not just automotive
  • Regulatory requirements for electric vehicle power: New PIDs and diagnostics
  • Systems that utilize AC power
  • DC vs. AC power analysis: Simple comparisons
  • Elements of AC power: the new language of analysis and diagnostics
  • DC resistance, inductance, impedance, capacitance, phase angle, current-to-frequency ratio, dissipation factor, efficiency, power factor and more
  • How understanding AC power effects depth of diagnostic success
  • Synthesizing AC power from DC: The power inverter AC waveform creation
  • Electric machines: AC sine waves, speed, torque and power control
  • The inevitable changes are happening now: it’s time for instructors and technicians to embrace the change to AC
