1 . Who can take your course?
The course is designed for beginners. The all engineering students who want to pursue career in automotive industry can take this course on 1D thermodynamic simulation tool. Third and final engineering students, Masters students or even Phd students who are willing to use analysis tool in their projects can opt for this course. This course will give them insight about how they can apply their engineering skills learned in books to real world problems. Considering upcoming stringent emission norms there are ample opportunities to students from mechanical, automotive, electronics (Electronic Control Unit) and chemical (aftertreatment) engineering background.
2. What is included in your course?
The course covers the current challenges the industry is facing and how system design tools like GT power is used to handle those challenges, effectively. Engine design is a very complex and requires knowledge of thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics etc. The course will cover topic on SI engine modelling, CI engine modelling, emission modelling, optimization tool to get the best combination of parameters, aftertreatment modelling turbocharger and supercharger modelling techniques, effective post processing techniques etc. The GT power tool is used very efficiently in the industry for calibration using Hardware-in-loop (Hil) and therefore Fast Runnin Model (FRM) topic is also covered in the course. Considering the current trends of industry towards hybrid mobility modelling techniques is also covered. The best part of the course is that the more focus is given on the real world examples.
3. What will the student gain from your course?
After completing the course students will have very effective tool in their hand. They will learn how to use GT power tool for system design, optimization post processing, engine modelling techniques, calibration of engines post processing techniques etc. The tool has infinite application possibilities and therefer students can use their creative and innovative minde to explore the various options, which will be useful for doing their project very effectively and gaining more credits.
4. What software skills are you teaching and how well are these tools used in the industry?
The course will help the students to gain the enough confidence to use the tool effectively for pre and post processing. The students will gain skills to understand gas exchange process and therefore need of variable valve train system, forced induction selection methodology and therefore need of advanced turbo charging and supercharging system, FRM builder methodology discretization techniques etc. The GT power 1D thermodynamic tool is used dominantly all over the world in almost all automotive industries, major aviation industries, power sector, battery manufacturers, etc. There is lot of demand to engineers who have hands on experience with 1D tool especially GT power.
5. What is the real world application for the tools and techniques will you teach in this course?
Everything in real world moves because of reason. The existing stringent emission norms all over the world are literally pushing the automotive industries towards zero emissions. It is becoming very challenging to achieve legislative demands and customer expectations simultaneously. After diesel gate incident the emission norms have moved from laboratory to real world called Real Driving Emission (RDE) norms. The simulation tools are playing important role in facing this challenges in cost effective manner and coming out with optimised design in short time. Just to give example with Indian scenario, by 2020 BS VI will be applicable pan India for all on-road vehicle categories. Heavy duty diesel application such as trucks is the backbone of Indian automotive sector which is going to stay Ic engine based. The challenges for trucks is to select the best engine configuration EGR or non-EGR route, thermal management strategies for best NOx conversion efficiencies, SCR material selection and sizing etc. The course will cover all this discussions along with modelling examples.
6. Which companies use these techniques and for what?
Cummins India and USA- engine modelling, vehicle modelling, turbocharger matching, aftertreatment modelling and calibration, HiL and controller design etc. for on-road application
Jogn Deere India and USA- engine modelling, vehicle modelling, turbocharger matching, aftertreatment modelling and calibration, HiL and controller design etc. for off-road application
Maruti Suzuki- engine modelling, vehicle modelling, turbocharger matching, aftertreatment modelling and calibration, HiL and controller design etc. for on-road application
7. How is your course going to help me in my path to MS or PhD?
The course will help to understand the capabilities of the tool. Many times students have innovative and creative ideas which they can analyse using he system design tool such as GT Power.Also it can be used to optimize the existing system in shorter time. The GT power hands on will give edge over other students.
8. How is this course going to help me get a job?
The GT power 1D thermodynamic tool is used dominantly all over the world in almost all automotive industries, major aviation industries, power sector, battery manufacturers, etc. There is lot of demand to people who have hands on experience with 1D tool especially GT power. The course will help the students to gain the enough confidence to use the tool effectively for pre and post processing.
