Governments all around the globe are mandating a shift from internal combustion and hybrid vehicles toward fully electric power trains; however, the trend toward electrification goes deeper than that. The explosion of supervisory control and drive by wire means subsystems like steering that were traditionally connected physically are now linked by sensors, electric motors, and multiple control systems. The reliance on power electronics and electric motor drives adds complexity to control systems, and combining these control systems makes that complexity grow exponentially. Engineers need to understand the broader implications of the electric vehicle for the electrical grid and transportation infrastructure.
