Summary

 

Course/Module

Tutor, Vehicle Propulsion Technologies ME4 MSC. (Postgraduate)

Future Clean Transport Technology - ME4-MFCTT

Aims

 To provide:

·      A basic understanding of the design features of reciprocating internal combustion engines and the underlying engineering science, with particular reference to the fluid flow, thermodynamics and combustion processes of spark- and compression-ignition engines.

·      An awareness of the means by which the need for reduced CO2 and pollutant emissions is met.

·      A basic understanding of the design features of hybrid, electric and fuel cell powered vehicles and the underlying engineering science, with particular reference to system design of battery packs and fuel cell systems.

·      A basic understanding of how the technologies compare to each other and how they fit into the bigger picture of the whole transport/energy system.

A practical, industrial context for the above knowledge through talks from visiting industry experts.
