Master thesis: Control and regulation of a hybrid drive system


Drive systems such as pedelecs and electric bicycles have been in vogue for some time. The facilitations in everyday life and leisure are obvious. These positive characteristics can be transferred to other systems. In the e-Rowboat project, an application is to be built that increases the range of an electric vehicle using arm-muscle power.



While in a further work the system shall be built up in a demonstrator, this work has the aim to design the corresponding control of the propulsion system.

  • Familiarization with the concept of the hybrid drive system

  • Understanding the requirements and the control concept of electric bicycles. Transfer of the results to the new drive concept

  • Modeling of the track + control in Matlab/Simulink.

  • Implementation of the control on the system (Matlab Embedded Coder)

  • Test of the system

  • Detailed documentation


  • Student of electrical engineering / control engineering / automation engineering

  • Enthusiasm for practical applications and alternative drives

  • Pleasure and interest in model building

The Integrated Energy Systems Group

The research group "Integrated Energy Systems" conducts research for the transformation of energy supply systems with the aim of developing a systematics that will be compatible with the environmental areas atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere in the future. This systematics is applied to the two main topics of energy economics and energy systems engineering.
