The transition from ICE to EV powertrains has been rapid and the array of configurations including Mild-Hybrid (MHEV), Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) and fully Electric (BEV) creates a multitude of customer use-cases that need to be accounted for in the validation plan. The relative cost of failure has more than doubled for the electrified powertrain, and the warranty period of high-cost systems (such as the battery) extends beyond the conventional 3 years, putting more emphasis on reliability improvements of the powertrain.

The webinar will demonstrate the reliability engineering opportunities during product development as Electric Vehicles become increasingly connected.

The webinar will be presented by:

Andrew Brown, Validation Methods & Reliability Manager, Powertrain Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover Ltd. Andrew graduated from Sheffield University in 2006 with a degree in Aerospace Engineering. Since then, he has worked in product development of Internal Combustion Engines, starting his career working on large diesel gensets for Perkins Engines and then transferring to Automotive ICE engine development at JLR. Andrew began working in the field of Reliability and Validation Methodology for base engines back in 2016, before leading the validation team on the new Range Rover PHEV battery (the first in-house developed battery at JLR). More recently he has transferred to a lead role in the Validation Methods & Reliability Technical Chapter, responsible for developing common Reliability Engineering practices for the Electric Propulsion System.
