Electronics for Combustion EnginesCopyright: 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).
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.

The dates for the lectures and exercises in the winter semester 2019/2020, please refer to the PDF document. The course is offered in the summer and winter semester.
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 RWTHmoodle.
