WHAT TO EXPECT
The electrification and drive transfer team within powertrain research is in charge of delivering new technology based on innovative concepts, proven through demonstrator vehicles. The focus of the team is on electric drive units as systems, eMachines technology, power electronics technology, battery hardware and chemistry. We are looking to recruit a postgraduate student to support our research projects.
The main objective of this project is to support the Powertrain testing operations by doing commission testing (test engineers, units, timing), supporting lubricant specification from test results and desktop studies and improving the EDU systems efficiency from previous conclusions.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
The prime requirement for participation in this project is to be pursuing a postgraduate degree in electrical/mechanical engineering. It is just as important that you’ll have good appreciation of running tests as well as an understanding of EDU loss mechanisms.
