AbstractFuture Relevance of IC Engines for Transportation and Power-on-Demand. Characteristic performance parameters and operating maps. Thermodynamic cycles and energetic optimization. Heat transfer and waste heat recovery. Turbocharging methods. Hybrid powertrains and energy storage on board. Decentralized power and heat cogeneration incl. use of renewable fuels.
ObjectiveThe students get familiar with operating characteristics and efficiency maximization methods of IC engines for propulsion and decentralized electricity ( and heat ) generation. For this purpose they learn to use advanced simulation methods and related experimental techniques for performance assessment in a combination of lectures and exercises.
