Development of a Senior Elective for EE and EET Majors + in the Design of Electronic Instrumentation for Electric Vehicles * Maher E. Rizkalla, Richard Pfile, Ahmed El-Antably , and Charles F. Yokomoto Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indianapolis Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis * Delphi E., Indianapolis, IN

This paper describes innovative ideas for an interdisciplinary EE/EET senior level course. The course integrates different technology that ranges from Power Electronics, Computer Simulation, Data Acquisition, DSP, Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic, Electromagnetics and Energies, and Microprocessor Control. Normally these topics are covered in details in more than fifteen credit hours, while using "only as needed" philosophy, we can cover what we need from these materials that serve an important application: Electric Vehicles. The paper details the contents of the course, the laboratory components utilizing an actual propulsion system as donated from Delphi E. Inc, a subdivision of GM, and the role of LabView as a data acquisition system. The course was offered in a senior project format and the student satisfaction is reported here. In addition, the course is offered officially in the Spring 1998, and more data will be reported as we progress in the course. The project is funded by FIPSE and this represents the first phase of the project.
