AbstractIntroduction to characteristic parameters, operating maps and classification of internal combustion engines (ICE). Engine process thermodynamic, simplified simulations of the engine process, heat transfer in IC-engines, turbocharging and waste heat recovery systems. Fields of applications of IC-engines in transportation (incl. hybrid powertrains) and decentralized cogeneration of power and heat.
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 powertrain systems.
