John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
As countries seek to address future energy requirements in a rapidly growing and changing world, achieving sustainable transportation has emerged as a vital mission. Electric vehicles (EVs), in particular, represent one of the most promising pathways to increased energy security and reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. In this webinar, we will review the history of electric vehicles since the 1800s, go over various types of electric vehicles and charging equipment, examine the global trend in EV production, and discuss the recent advances in battery power/management - the most critical component in an electrical vehicle. In addition, we will explore the details of electric motors and take a virtual tour of Tesla Motors - the most promising startup automaker in the world.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
