Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to propose an approach to teach to post-graduate students the basis of hybrid propulsion systems (HPS) with emphasis on their electric drive unit.
Design/methodology/approach – Following the introduction of the basic topologies of HPS, a case study is focused with an analysis of its current features. Of particular interest, those related to the flux-weakening range extension and the cost-effectiveness improvement are rethought in an attempt to stimulate the innovative capabilities of the students.
Findings – The adopted methodology has been integrated in a master course and has been found attractive and informative by the students.
Practical implications – The proposed teaching approach should be complemented by appropriate laboratory courses.
Originality/value – Thanks to the proposed methodology, the basis of HPS is no longer restricted to a selected population of the electrical engineering community.
