AbstractIntroduction to basic concepts, operating maps and work processes of internal combustion engines. Thermodynamic analysis and design, scavenging methods, heat transfer mechanisms, turbulent flow field in combustion chambers, turbocharging. Energy systemic role of IC engines: conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion systems and decentralized power generation.
ObjectiveThe students learn the basic concepts of an internal combustion engine by means of the topics mentioned in the abstract. This knowledge is applied in several calculation exercises and two lab exercises at the engine test bench. The students get an insight in alternative power train systems.

AbstractThe module gives an introduction to the MAS or the CAS. In addition to targeted factual knowledge from different disciplines and industries, basics for the cooperation in heterogeneous teams are imparted. A specific challenge shall be handled in a team. The participants are able to understand the fundamentals of transport as a complex system and its transformation.
ObjectiveThe participants are able to understand fundamentals and the basic parameters of the complexity of the overall transport system and its transformation and relation to own work context.
Content-Mobility as a system
-Description of status quo of transport system(s)
-Description of historical developments of transport system(s)
-Possible developments of transport system(s) and deviation between possible and desired sustainable developments
-Transformation of transport system
-Possible transformation paths & interventions
-Basics for potential technology innovations
-Basics & framework of potential mobility behaviour / market
-Application of basics of the overall mobility system and its transformation upon a real issue regarding autonomous driving.

4 credits3GK. Boulouchos, G. Georges
AbstractThe module provides a foundation in the current situation and short- and middle-term development directions of powertrain and automotive engineering in the context of passenger & goods transport. Corresponding energy sources and resulting consequences for the energy system are addressed. Participants will be enabled to identify potentials of these technologies and apply them to concrete problems.
ObjectiveFamiliarity with conventional and alternative powertrain and automotive systems for future sustainable mobility, and the ability to identify and deploy their potential to address concrete problems.
Content- Drive component efficiency rates and core fields
- Drive and non-drive energy flow / Vehicle "driving resistance"
- Energy chains (operating power only) and CO2 emissions to primary energy
