The course is free of charges. The participants have to sustain their own living and accommodation expenses. Hotel rooms are available at the campus and its close area with a wide range of prices. Several student restaurants are also available at the campus (5 – 7 EUR/ meal).


The working language of the course is English.

Course requirement

To pass the course and obtain the 5 ECTS, the students are required to participate in at least 80 % of the lectures and simulations, and write learning diaries from each lecture. Further, a technical report on a chosen subject related to the course has to be written and submitted no later than two (2) weeks from the end of the course (DL. Fri. 3.6.2011 at 23.59). A list of subjects will be presented at the beginning of the course but students own subjects can be proposed too. Detailed instructions will be given at the start of the course. The unit has been organized by Dr. Anouar Belahcen from the Dept. of Electrical Engineering of Aalto University.


The lectures will be given by Prof. Alain Bouscayrol, University Lille 1, Sciences & Technologies, L2EP, MEGEVH, France, and he will be assisted by Dr. Walter Lhomme (University Lille1) and Dr. Lucia Gauchia (University Carlos III of Madrid). Prof. Matti Lehtonen from the Dept. of Electrical Engineering of Aalto University will also give a two hours lecture related to the impact of EVs on the distribution grid.


Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and Electric Vehicles (EVs) are more and more developed to face the problems of green house gases and petroleum resource depletion. Energy management is a key issue of HEV and EV development in order to enable such vehicles to be competitive with thermal vehicles despite their cost. The modelling of such systems is quite complex because of the multiphysical interconnected subsystems and the multi-scale dimension of the different dynamics. A cybernetic approach is required to take into account dynamic interaction of these multi-physical systems. The aim of this course is to present different modelling methods for HEV energy management. The requirements of HEV modelling and energy management will be discussed and two examples (one EV and one HEV) will be studied using Energetic Macroscopic Representation.
