A Quick Overview

Boundary, is a keyword in an engineering world. Boundaries are defined due to limitations in technology, resources, commercials and last but not the least, legislation. The compulsion in emission legislation which is becoming stricter and tighter day by day are opening new challenges in the automotive world. Currently Euro VI or similar emission norms are implemented and as an automotive fraternity we are moving towards zero tailpipe emission norms in near future.

The current course is designed for candidates considering the requirement of industry. While doing calibration for the engine and aftertreatment system it is very important to understand the complexity between legislation, right  technology selection, getting plausible results using simulation tools to reduce physical testing efforts etc. Many times students can not answer questions while facing an interview as they only focus on Simulation as a tool. This course will make candidates more confident while facing interviews as important concepts are addressed while explaining GT Power examples. This course is also suitable for employees who have recently started a career in the calibration domain and interested in implementing 1D simulation tool on Hardware-in-Loop (Hil) system to reduce physical testing efforts. Topics such as emission norms, predictive combustion calibration,  CI vs SI combustion calibration challenges, virtual calibration, case study on heavy duty application etc. are covered to have better understanding about the calibration concept. Calibration is so vast and therefore requires knowledge of IC engine basics, optimization, emission correlations, engine and aftertreatment technology limitations, customer requirements etc. An honest effort is put to address all above issues while maintaining the balance between time, students' level of understanding to retain interest in the course.  Required technical references are provided wherever necessary if someone is interested in going into the depth of the subject.

Covid-19 has changed the way employees are working. More and more resources are handling work from home and it is becoming a new norm in every sector. Therefore the importance of simulation tools has increased many fold and OEMs are looking towards Simulation tools as the prime path to minimise physical testing. We believe this course will show you the path towards the right direction to achieve future emission norms virtually using only simulation tools and fulfilling the long awaited dream of avoiding physical testing.

Considering upcoming stringent emission norms there are ample opportunities for students from mechanical, automotive, electronics (Electronic Control Unit)  and chemical (aftertreatment) engineering backgrounds.

2What is included in this course?

The course covers the current challenges the industry is facing and how system design tools like GT power is used to handle those challenges, effectively. The course will give overview of engine calibration for legislative requirements maintaining customer expectations of performance with case study on diesel passenger car, heavy duty commercial vehicle. The course cover topics on euro 6 legislative norms, strategies for achieving emission norms, aftertreatment configurations, virtual calibration methodology to minimise physical testing, predictive diesel model and its sensitive parameters with case study, predictive SI combustion model engine modelling etc. The best part of the course is that the more focus is given on the understanding of the real world challenges, strategies used by OEMs so that the user will get clarity on the utilisation of tool from various perspectives.

3What will the student gain from this course?

It has been observed that there is a gap between industry expectations and what the candidates present during interviews. It is very important to understand that a tool is just a medium to solve mathematical equations and get the results.Industry expect that the candidate they are going to select will have domain knowledge. This course is designed in such a way to feel those gaps. After completing this course the user will have better clarity on the end usage of the calibration challenges faced by industry and how tool can help to reduce time and efforts. After completing the course students will have a very effective tool in their hand. The tool has infinite application possibilities and therefer students can use their creative and innovative mind to explore the various options, which will be useful for doing their project very effectively and gaining more credits.

4What software skills are you teaching and how well are these tools used in the industry?

The course will help the students to gain the enough confidence to use the tool effectively for calibration. The students will gain skills to understand  various emission norms, predictive combustion and its sensitive parameters, methodology to optimise combustion parameters for DI pulse and SI Turb models, DeNOx system and its critical parameters and its system functionality, virtual calibration methodology and its usage etc. The case study on diesel passenger car, heavy duty PACAAR engine will help students to gain confidence and have practical approach while modeling plant models. The methodology once understood can be extended to various applications such as ICE, hybrid, EVS domain. The GT power 1D thermodynamic tool is used dominantly all over the world in almost all automotive industries, major aviation industries, power sector, battery manufacturers, etc.  There is a lot of demand for engineers who have hands-on experience with 1D tool especially GT power.

5What is the real world application for the tools and techniques will you teach in this course?

Everything in real world moves because of reason. The existing stringent emission norms all over the world are literally pushing the automotive industries towards zero emissions. It is becoming very challenging to achieve legislative demands and customer expectations simultaneously. After diesel gate incident the emission norms have moved from laboratory to real world called Real Driving Emission (RDE) norms. The simulation tools are playing important role in facing this challenges in cost effective manner and coming out with optimised design in short time. Just to give example with Indian scenario, by 2020 BS VI wil be applicable pan India for all on-road vehicle categories. Heavy duty diesel application such as trucks is the backbone of Indian automotive sector which is going to stay Ic engine based. The challenges for trucks is to select the best engine configuration EGR or non-EGR route, thermal management strategies for best NOx conversion efficiencies, SCR material selection and sizing etc. The course will cover all this discussions along with modelling examples.

6Which companies use these techniques and for what?
