At the Department of Basic Technical Studies, Faculty of Engineering, University of Debrecen we have been dealing with the methodological reforming of mathematics education for more than ten years now. The recently published course book “Mathematical Tools in Engineering Applications” is the result of this long term creative work. The book presents the applications of the most important mathematical tools (vectors, matrices, linear functions, complex numbers, differential and integration calculus) in the different fields of engineering, natural sciences and economics. The aim of the authors with the recent publication is the presentation and popularization of the above book together with the educational and methodological trend it represents.

In the following we are presenting a vehicle dynamics simulation program developed in MATLAB environment. The program is capable of calculating the dynamics functions of a vehicle from its technical data. The program has been successfully applied for the optimization of the technical data of an electric driven race car that was designed and constructed at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Debrecen.

• Review of Drive Systems Applied in Modern Vehicles

In this publication we review the drive systems of modern electric and hybrid vehicles. We also discuss the various types of electric motors, batteries, as well as fuel cell systems applied in them. Furthermore, as an important part of hybrid vehicles is the internal combustion engine, we review the literature about the methods used to.

• Dynamic Tests on a Series Wound DC Motor. Simulation of the Braking of the Vehicle Driven by the Motor
15-20

In the following we present the role and contribution of vehicle dynamics simulation to vehicle development in the University of Debrecen Faculty of Engineering. We present the input technical parameters which are necessary for the simulation of the series wound DC motor – which drives the vehicle – and also the procedure for their measurement together with the results of dynamic test measurements on the motor. The latest version of our vehicle dynamics simulation program –which is capable of the simulation of braking too – is also presented here.

• Review of Modern Vehicle Powertrains and Their Modelling and Simulation in MATLAB/Simulink

Thanks to technological advances and environmental standards, as well as changing usage patterns, road vehicles are constantly developing. Electric and hybrid vehicles are playing an increasingly important role in today’s road transport. The most significant changes are probably in the powertrain of vehicles. The efficiency of internal combustion engines increases while their emissions continue to decline. In addition, high performance electric motors, batteries and even fuel cells play an increasingly important role in hybrid and electric vehicles. In this publication, we review the drive systems of current modern vehicles and the types and characteristics of their major components. We also review the available models and computer programs for their simulation, focusing mainly on MATLAB/Simulink applications. Based on this, we can develop our own models and simulation programs which will help us to perform different driving dynamics simulations and to compare the performance, dynamic and energetic characteristics of these powertrains and their components to each other.

In our previous publications [1, 2], we described our vehicle dynamics simulation program which was developed in MATLAB environment. We also discussed its use for optimizing the technical parameters of electric driven vehicles. We detailed the model and simulation of the series wound DC motor which is part of the program. Besides, we described the experimental procedure by which we can determine the electromagnetic characteristics of the motor from the input parameters of the simulation program. In the present publication we deal with the determination of the dynamic characteristics of the motor (the moment of inertia of the rotor, bearing and brush resistance torques) experimentally. Knowing the above mentioned electromagnetic and dynamic characteristics, we can carry out the simulation of the motor and the results of the simulation can be compared to the results of the test measurements.

In the framework of the “Debrecen Venture Catapult Program (EFOP-3.6.1-16-2016-00022)” the colleagues of the Department of Basic Technical Studies of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Debrecen worked out workshops for secondary school students. One of the above mentioned workshops is the „Dynamics workshop supported by computer software”, the topic of which is the experimental and theoretical study of dynamic problems using highly developed computer software. Apart from describing the above mentioned workshop and the experiences related to it, we also present the reactions of the students, and describe how the workshop contributes to their widening knowledge.. Furthermore, we also analyse what knowledge, skills and information students would need to be more creative, motivated and initiative and this way more successful in their studies and at work, as well as in their everyday lives, in the field of engineering. In the end, as a conclusion, we make recommendations concerning further improvements of the workshop.
