Electric Mobility Components Production (EMKP)


A Brief Introduction

After completing the in-depth elective lecture, students are familiar with value creation structures in electric vehicle component production. They can apply this knowledge in different areas and transfer it to future problems. The lecture unit "Introduction to Electric Vehicle Component Production" (EKP) introduces the basics of e-vehicle production and provides an overview of the major changes in the automotive industry brought about by the introduction of electric vehicles.

New business models and mobility services

The lecture unit "Value Creation Structures in EKP" looks at the relationship between automotive manufacturers and suppliers in addition to the new value creation steps. New business models and mobility services are addressed. The sections "Battery cell production" and "Battery module and pack production" are dedicated to the production and assembly processes from individual battery cells to the entire high-voltage storage system. The lecture unit "Electric Motor Production" provides insights into the fundamentals of the electric motor and illustrates the entire production process for the individual components. The section "Drive Systems Production" addresses the product and process technologies of electric drive units and their subsystems.

Fuel cell, recycling and financial aspects

The "Fuel Cell Production" unit explains the fundamentals of fuel cells for mobile applications and associated hydrogen storage systems. The focus is on the production and assembly of individual components as well as entire fuel cell stacks and fuel cell systems. The section "Quality and testing processes in EKP" in turn highlights quality-related aspects of the production process, and the unit "Recycling processes" deals with the circular economy from battery system production, 2nd-use applications, remanufacturing and recycling. The section "Cost structures and investment requirements" conveys what influence the changed powertrain has on these very aspects, the unit "Industrialization processes" describes the path from the product idea to series production, and the section "Prospects for future production processes" offers an outlook on the requirements that the manufacturing processes of the future will entail.
