Special knowledge is required for work on electrical systems. This work may therefore only be carried out by qualified electricians or other persons from the automotive sector with the additional qualification for work on high-voltage systems. From sensitisation to activation as a specialist for HV systems in motor vehicles, these documents serve for use in training as a motor vehicle mechatronics technician, for training in further training as a specialist for high-voltage systems in motor vehicles and for preparation for the final examination.
- Why do you have to have a high-voltage qualification to be allowed to work on modern vehicles with electric drives?
- Which basic electrotechnical knowledge is it necessary to brush up on in order to be "fit" for work with the high-voltage technology in modern electric vehicles?
- What electrical machines and devices are used in electrically driven vehicles?
- What are the hazards in the workshop for mechatronics engineers handling electrically driven vehicles and how are these dealt with
- What legal regulations must be taken into account when handling electrically driven vehicles in the workshop? What are the requirements for the workshop personnel?
- Description of the technology and of disconnection using examples from real series production vehicles.
The author Henning Wagner trained and worked for years in two trades, as a motorbike mechanic and toolmaker, before studying Engineering. He has been teaching Automotive Engineering for over 20 years, in particular specialised classes for automobile electricians and now for automobile mechatronics engineers, with a particular emphasis on vehicle communications technology, as well as at the Master School for Motor Vehicle Technicians. As a specialist advisor for automotive engineering, the author has been heavily involved in teacher training and in curriculum commissions for many years on behalf of his regional council and the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport. He has also been very involved in the Implementation Commission for the Introduction of Learning Areas and in the State Committee for the Coordination of the Final Examinations for Automobile Mechatronics Engineers. He is particularly interested in the further development of laboratory teaching in vocational school teaching practice; this is also integrated into this book by means of corresponding worksheets. Due to his background, the author frequently gets his hands dirty in the workshop himself, in order to experience automotive technology from the viewpoint of the workshop staff, i.e. the trainees, and to ensure that this book is as practical and technologically up-to-date as possible.
The author Reinhard Maier trained as an automobile electrician and mechanic. He undertook further training to become an electrical engineer. He has been teaching Automotive Engineering for over 30 years, in particular specialised classes for automobile electricians and now for automobile mechatronics engineers, with a particular emphasis on vehicle communications technology. As a specialist supervisor for automotive engineering, the author has been heavily involved in teacher training for many years on behalf of his regional council and the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport. He has also been very involved in the Implementation Commission for the Introduction of Learning Areas and in devising teaching units for workshop learning. He is particularly interested in the further development of workshop learning in vocational schools.
The author Jürgen Schubert trained as an automotive mechanic and master mechanic. He has been teaching as a technical teacher for automotive engineering for 14 years, primarily specialised practice in the workshop area of a vocational school in Baden-Württemberg. His field of activity includes foundation stages, specialised stages and the Master School for Motor Vehicle Technicians, with a particular focus here on electrics/electronics. He is active on behalf of his regional council as a specialist advisor for automotive engineering and as member of an automobile working group. His role in this is to address current technological issues and to implement them in the corresponding regional and cross-regional teacher training programmes.
