Title: Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Braking and Steering Systems
Url: http://autocaat.org/WebForms/ResourceDetail.aspx?id=999
Creator: Reynolds Sr., Christopher E.
Publisher: Lewis and Clark Community College
Description: This module consists of a PowerPoint presentation, lab sheet, and syllabi discussing HEVs' braking and steering systems. These materials are derived from three courses offered at Lewis and Clark Community College on automotive alignment, braking, and steering systems and were developed through a seed grant from the CAAT. The presentation discusses the circuitry and operations for HEV braking and steering systems, variations from traditional braking and steering power assist, and how to service brake pads on a Ford Escape Hybrid. The lab sheet should familiarize students with the variations and similarities between hybrid and conventional systems when servicing a HEV's brake pads such as placing the vehicle in “Pad Service Mode.” The provided syllabi includes highlighted sections where these HEV technologies were incorporated into alignment, brakes, and suspension courses at Lewis and Clark Community College.
