Electronics for Combustion Engines

  Picture EAVRange Extender FEV GmbH, KSPG AG

Modern engines and powertrains in the vehicle are equipped with continuously rising number of electronics and mechatronics components. Accordingly, also the effort for development and calibration of powertrain electronics increases constantly. To face this challenge, vehicle engineers need a solid fundamental understanding of the mechatronic actuators and sensors and the interaction with the engine control unit (ECU).


 
 

 

Content

This lecture covers the fundamentals of various control actuators for gasoline and diesel engines and their potential to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Important ECU functions and their conversion into electrical signals which directly influence the engine are preented.

The increasing interaction between engine, chassis and gearbox control units and the effect on network security, reliability as well as the electromagnetic tolerance are explained attending various examples of modern vehicles.

Information

The dates for the lectures and exercises in the summer semester 2017, please refer to the PDF document.

All lectures and exercises documents to the lecture series can be found in L2P learning room. If you have any problems with the registration on campus Office, . We're here to help.

Examination

At the end of the event your theoretical knowledge is assessed in an oral examination. It offers two examination dates, where you have the opportunity to influence these dates to avoid any collisions with other examination dates.

The announcement date of the oral examination will take place on our website and in the L2P learning room.
