Conceptual Simulation for Plug-In HEV at Early Stage of Development

This study aims to build a conceptual simulation used at the early stage of PHEV development, to enable the precise prediction of fuel consumption and vehicle acceleration. The methodology used significantly contributes to design vehicle concept and to define system and component specifications.

Steady state cam optimization process for optimal engine operation over the speed-load map

A gasoline engine is an energy conversion device, where chemical energy is converted into mechanical energy. Many technologies aim to decrease the net indicated fuel consumption (eg. downsizing, Atkinson/Miller cycles, lean/dilute operation, optimal design, etc.). By optimizing cam timing over a speed-load map, subject to constraints, further efficiency improvements can be gained.
