Part II: Introduction Of The SAE Vehicle Electrification Certification – Level 1
February 26, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This certification is the result of five years of preparation through the NSF project grant – Northwest Engineering and Vehicle Technology Exchange (NEVTEX) Due # 1700708
Outcomes of the SAE Level I educational courses are designed to provide instructors and technicians with information and skills that are inclusive of technical metrics governed in core technologies and industry standards of HV safety and safety systems.
The certification requires experience with high voltage personal protective equipment (PPE) and vehicle high voltage vehicle safety systems utilized in the light, medium, and heavy-duty BEV/PHEV/HEV vehicles. Those enrolled in the certification will be introduced to PPE and specialized tools/equipment associated with servicing high voltage systems. Topical areas including manual service disconnects, interlock circuits, high voltage bus discharge, and isolation fault monitoring circuits will encompass the core vehicle system elements focused within the Level 1 Certification.
Areas that the SAE Vehicle Electrification Certification – Level 1 will cover:
- Review of Vehicle Level Vehicle Electrification High Voltage System Architectures
- High Voltage Safety & PPE
- Tools and Equipment Associated with Testing and Servicing High Voltage Systems
- High Voltage Vehicle Safety Systems
- Ken Mays, Central Oregon Community College
- Dr. Mark Quarto, Chief Technical Officer – Future Tech Auto LLC, will introduce you to the SAE Vehicle Electrification Certification – Level 1
- Chris Quarto, BD/OD/MFG CN for Electrified Vehicle Systems, will introduce you to the resources that will prepare you for the certification
