A Quick Overview

We have been through a lockdown for several months and it is obvious that many of us want to go out, take a walk, travel in our vehicles, and so on. While we do go out sometimes, what is the most common thing that we come across? Well, there are a lot of such things, but there is nothing out there that has been as common and impactful on our lives as the engines. Engines are everywhere. Cars, Buses, motorcycles, auto rickshaws, even the generators in many houses employ engines. It is not an understatement if we say that the invention of the engine revolutionized the world. With that said, it is necessary for any aspiring engineer to have an in-depth understanding of how the engine works. 

Let’s discuss how the engine operates in brief. First, fuel is injected into the combustion chamber of the engine using the injection valves. This fuel is then allowed to undergo combustion inside the chamber, causing the generation of heat. This heat, in-turn, causes a rapid pressurization of the gaseous combustion products inside the combustion chamber and drives a piston. The movement of this piston rotates a crankshaft, and this rotation is used for driving the vehicles or generating electricity. 

That sounded a bit confusing, didn’t it? Well, the operation of an engine is not as simple as it sounds. There are several subsystems that work together within the engine such as the ignition and exhaust systems, fuel injection systems, cooling systems, and so on. Since there are multiple subsystems operating within the engine, a lot of variables are involved in the process of engine operation, such as the amount of fuel, how much the piston can move, etc. A wrong value of any variable can cause severe consequences for the engine. 

Hence, to avoid such situations, Engine Management Systems or EMS have been developed. EMS consists of a wide variety of electronic and electrical equipment such as sensors, relays, actuators, and an Engine Control Unit or ECU. These equipment operate together to provide the EMS with vital information which are vital for the efficient operation of an engine. Today, EMS has been included in all modern-day engine technologies. 

A function of the EMS is to check the position of the engine during its operation as well as to control the ignition and injection process of the engine. This function is known as the Engine Position Management System, or EPMS. The EPMS is essential as it helps us

  • Achieve the maximum fuel economy
  • Comply with all relevant engine regulations worldwide
  • Precisely define when to perform injection and ignition operation in the engine  
  • Define how long injection and ignition operation should be performed
  • Establish a mechanism to control the engine hardware with software 
  • Control the injections valves and ignitions coil

The EPMS performs all its functions by using the sensors and transducers of EMS, obtaining the data from them and  implementing control algorithms with the help of softwares. Hence, EPMS is a critical part of the EMS as well as the entire engine. 

If you are keen on understanding the engines, the Engine Position Management System is an essential part of the study.  For this very reason, we at Skill-Lync have a course which will take you through not only the various aspects of EPMS, but also the various subsystems within the engine. The seven-week course covers both Engine Position Management systems and Engine Subsystems. 

Our course consists of various challenges and assignments on a weekly basis which will surely help you gain a proper understanding of Engine Position Management and Engine Subsystems. Our team of technical support engineers will make sure that you achieve your goal.
