WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Students will understand a comprehensive overview of hybrid vehicle powertrains, learning how internal combustion (IC) engines, batteries, and motors work together to move vehicles. They will control the rate of fuel injection, throttle position, and variable cam timing position in an IC engine, and how those technologies reduce carbon dioxide emissions produced by running a gasoline, direct-injected (GDI) engine. They will then learn the fundamentals of motor control and will control a brushless DC motor similar to one found in a hybrid vehicle. Finally, they will control an electrified supercharger that uses energy from a vehicle’s battery to improve engine performance and fuel economy.
Course highlights include:
- Fuel injector control waveform development
- Tuning PID controllers for variable cam timing and throttle control in LabVIEW
- Analyzing combustion with in-cylinder pressure transducers
- Brushless DC motor control
- Electrified supercharger control over CAN
