10:30 Uhr - NOx reduction by downsizing without air charging
Dapo Ogunmuyiwa, managing director, Ogunmuyiwa Motorentechnik GmbH, GERMANY
Although downsizing by means of air charging has been successful in contributing to CO2 reductions, it has had a negative effect on NOx emissions by increasing the mass flow of N2 in downsized engines. This has adversely contributed towards the supply of the main constituent responsible for the formation of NOx. This presentation introduces the strategy of downsizing by applying the high-efficiency Ogunmuyiwa Engine Cycle to planetary reciprocating piston engines without air charging. This reduces the admission of N2 into the downsized engines as a basis for improved NOx reduction strategies, while maintaining the CO2 reduction benefits of downsizing.

10:50 Uhr - Regulated centrifugal pumps – overview and introduction of novel solution with blade regulation
Gerald Feichtinger, head of fluid mechanics and test, Bitter GmbH, AUSTRIA
Auto makers are liable to lower fleet consumption to 95g/km CO2 by 2020. Engine modification efficiency rise by downsizing, supercharging, de-throttling of air intake or reduction of friction losses is on limit. Hence, regulated ancillary components gain in importance. In the field of automotive main coolant pumps there exist some regulated solutions, but either they are passive ones that destroy energy or they are active ones and very costly. The presentation discusses this and gives details of a new active and cost-efficient design concept with blade regulation.

11:10 Uhr - Efficiency and emission benefits of a new cylinder deactivation mechanism
Mathew Middleton, research engineer, Gill Research and Development, UK
Gill Research and Development presents a novel intake system for the internal combustion engine. The device constitutes a fast, solenoid-actuated shutoff upstream of a conventional cam-actuated intake valve. The cam-less valve actuation facilitates highly flexible, variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation for part load operation. Results from computational modelling of this device are presented and indicate that implementation of an early intake valve closure strategy achieves fuel savings of 7.7-12% at low loads, and that flexible cylinder deactivation could achieve a reduction in fuel consumption of as much as 43% when tested over the New European Drive Cycle.

11:30 Uhr - GRIPCOAT joining technology for lightweight design of a new generation of cars
Günter Eitzinger, head of advanced engineering, High Tech Coatings GmbH, AUSTRIA
The demands of increasing power density of engines with, at the same time, more compact and lighter construction of engines and vehicles is a great challenge for torque transfer. The power transmission of interference fit assembly is limited by the coefficient of friction of both parts to be joined. The increase of force or torque transfer can be achieved with given design only by increasing the coefficient of friction. New direct coatings are introduced on the basis of industrial diamonds, which create an increased coefficient of friction up to a factor 6 (COF 0,7). New, lightweight material combinations are applicable.

11:50 Uhr - Advanced gasoline engine technologies to achieve diesel-like fuel efficiency
Paul Freeland, principal engineer, Cosworth Limited, UK
Legislation on CO2 emissions had encouraged a reliance on diesel vehicles to achieve fleet average targets. However, air-quality issues and real-world driving legislation are forcing a review, and the potential of diesel engines to reduce CO2 is now significantly reduced. This requires that gasoline engines continue to be developed to their ultimate efficiency potential. This presentation shows methods whereby gasoline engines can rival the fuel efficiency of diesel engines. It details the development of a 2.0 litre GDI engine delivering 105kW/litre, yet capable of less than 300g/kW.h BSFC at 2000/2.0bar BMEP using series-production technologies.

12:10 Uhr - Industrial additive manufacturing – the digital FIT factory
Albert Klein, CFO and sales director, FIT AG, GERMANY

This requires close interaction between design, simulation, additive production processes and the latest software – all implemented by FIT as a scalable system of digitised additive manufacturing. Industrial AM is successfully realised by FIT: manufacturing of prototypes, design optimisation of ADM parts and cost reduction of ADM serial parts. The presented case study of produced real parts shows clearly the differences and benefits of the various product alternatives offered by FIT.

12:30 Uhr - NO and NO2 in one cylinder: a stability challenge
Sophie Lombard, research scientist, Air Liquide, FRANCE
Accurate measurements of pollutants for vehicle emissions testing such as RDE and PEMS require calibration protocols using precise and stable calibration gas standards. Laboratories reported instability of cylinders containing both NO and NO2 pollutants. This presentation outlines the results of a shelf-life study of gas mixtures containing these molecules with other atmospheric pollutants, showing that this instability has been overcome. A dedicated cylinder treatment along with our filling protocols guarantees accuracy better than 1% for each batch. These stable mixtures will help instrument users in simplifying their calibration protocols, and improve analytical reliability.

12:50 Uhr - High power density automotive motor design using radial spoke concept
Ian Foley, managing director, Equipmake Ltd, UK
The trend in automotive traction motor development is for higher speed to increase power density, reduce weight, and in the process reduce manufacturing cost. Current motor developments have focused on conventional interior permanent magnet solutions. The spoke motor architecture allows significantly higher power densities to be achieved, thereby further reducing weight and cost. This presentation will show an analysis of a conventional IPM motor with a spoke motor of similar performance, including data from rig testing showing real-world results. An analysis of the design issues and route to mass manufacture will also be presented.

13:10 Uhr - Introducing innovative concepts on how to connect injectors to diesel engines

As these innovative concepts lead to reduced costs, complexity and installation time, the presentation will outline areas of research, product design and technology involved in the development of these breakthrough new solutions.

13:30 Uhr - Active charge air cooling for performance and emissions improvement
Chris Whelan, director, Air Cycle Technology Ltd, UK
Charge air temperature limits the maximum power of highly boosted SI engines. Reducing charge temperature improves detonation margins and requires less fuel enrichment. The impact is also experienced in real-world driving, where high-performance vehicles often require significant power scale-backs in high ambient temperature conditions. Based around a compact high-efficiency turbo-expander, Air Cycle Technology has created a charge air refrigeration system capable of delivering sub-ambient charge air temperatures and managing them over a wide load ~ speed envelope. This paper presents the technology and development work on ACT's Active Charge Cooling system.

13:50 Uhr - Cumulative enabling effects of a driven turbocharger
Thomas Waldron, executive vice president, SuperTurbo Technologies Inc, USA
The SuperTurbo is a step forward from a traditional turbocharger, with a mechanical transmission that links the turbo shaft to the engine. This enables power transfer to and from the turbo shaft that is not possible with a normal turbocharger. During transient operation, the SuperTurbo operates in supercharging mode, powering the turbo shaft to quickly provide boost. During operation at higher engine power levels, the turbine of the SuperTurbo captures more energy from the exhaust than is needed to drive the compressor, and thus operates in turbo-compound mode. This extra turbine power is transferred directly to the engine crankshaft.

14:10 Uhr - Axial flux electric motors: small, light, powerful, ultra efficient
Niall Johanson, head of sales, Saietta, UK
If electric motors are to become universally used on our roads, they will need to be exceptionally efficient to make the best use of their power sources. They also need to be cost-effective, easily packaged, light and reliable. Saietta has solved these problems and is ready to work with companies worldwide to supply their green transportation needs. This presentation will inform the audience about the latest developments in electric motor design and production.

It has a solution to the problems encountered by all the current generation of rechargeable appliances, devices and vehicles: slow charging. Called Carbon-Ion, in contrast to Lithium-ion, this technology is based on carbon nano-materials including the ‘wonder-material’, graphene. The result is ultra-fast charging – in five minutes or less. The technology and a growing patent portfolio is in part derived from Oxford University, and in part developed independently by Zap&Go’s own scientists. The company is at the capability stage with a number of prototype demonstrators. Its first commercial product is due to enter production in 2018.

16:05 Uhr - Innovation in light-weighting of cast components
Kevin P Smith, product development specialist, JD Norman Industries, UK
JD Norman is working with a number of OEMs on light-weighting of cast components. Employing leading-edge advanced engineering, traditional foundry techniques and innovative software, we have been able to significantly reduce weight in components for direct value added for the customer. By securing an Innovate feasibility grant, JD Norman was able to realise a project that will create new employment and protect existing jobs. The grant was also key to the innovative development and aligned our ideas with a leading automotive vehicle manufacturer, providing the vital links for a route to market. However, weight saving is just one small element that JD Norman can offer to reduce carbon output. In a recent project, over 130 tons of cast metal was saved each year on a production part, leading to downstream and upstream savings including power, transportation, consumables and waste disposal. If we add to this improvements in component metallurgical conditions and gains in part functionality, the entire supply chain stands to make large savings from combining tradition with advanced engineering. JD Norman is leading in the light-weighting of castings in high-volume production scenarios.

Using the optimisation of a Formula E powertrain and a commercial vehicle e-turbo example, this presentation will explore MTS’s development process for electric drive systems and the path from motorsports applications to cost-effective volume production.

12:30 Uhr - Libralato rotary hybrid engine
Dan Aris, managing director, Libralato Limited, UK
The Libralato rotary hybrid engine is a compelling new concept of engine architecture and thermodynamic cycle, solving the problems of the Wankel engine (poor combustion, overheating, seal wear) through its exchange of gases between three dynamic chambers and its non-contact, long escape path, sealing. Predicted to be as efficient as a diesel engine (>40%) using gasoline, but 50% smaller and 30% lower cost, its key advantages are its exceptionally high, asymmetric, compression and expansion ratios and its integrated exhaust gas recirculation (<30% EGR) for ultra-low emissions. It enables PHEV systems to fit into standard engine bays, cost competitively.

12:50 Uhr - Active and passive in-duct acoustic characteristics of a turbocharger compressor
Isaac Jaimes, R&D engineer/PhD candidate, CRITTM2A, FRANCE
Turbochargers contribute to downsizing and allow constructors to respect increasingly severe emissions norms. However, the turbocharger behaves as an in-duct acoustic source in the air intake system, and has an influence on the acoustic waves travelling within it. The passive and active acoustic characteristics of the turbocharger can be used as a starting point for the design and development of acoustic devices in the air intake system, or as an input of acoustic 1D simulations of engine intake lines. In this paper, experimental techniques to measure the active and passive in-duct acoustic characteristics of a turbocharger are presented.

11:30 Uhr - Wireless telemetry for rotating and reciprocating powertrain components
Paul LaVigne, co-owner/VP, IR Telemetrics Inc, USA
The presentation will discuss custom-built telemetry systems for acquiring temperature, strain, pressure, proximity, motion, friction and acceleration on rotating and reciprocating internal powertrain components such as pistons, crankshafts, connecting rods, valves, gears, clutches, bearings, torque converters, camshafts, rocker arms, driveshafts, etc.

11:50 Uhr - External combustion engines – 21st century's all-fuel green engine
Harry Schoell, CTO/chairman, Cyclone Power Technologies Inc, USA
The presentation will explain how Cyclone Power Technologies has taken the Rankin cycle with efficiencies of over 30% to an all-fuel green engine as a power source. Meeting emissions on tier 7, manufacturing and maintenance friendly, water lubricated (no oil), cost comparable to ICE and Diesel engines with fewer peripherals to maintain.

12:10 Uhr - From motorsports to OEM-relevant EV/hybrid solutions
Dr Christoph Leser, business development manager, MTS Systems Corporation, USA
Developing electric drive systems for electric and hybrid vehicles requires development in many domains. Through successful development of electric motors and drives for Formula E and Formula 1 we arrived at road car and truck applications for e-turbo and traction drive using the necessary modelling and simulation tools for rapid development and a test lab to verify the various models. Using the optimisation of a Formula E powertrain and a commercial vehicle e-turbo example, this presentation will explore MTS’s development process for electric drive systems and the path from motorsports applications to cost-effective volume production.

12:30 Uhr - Libralato rotary hybrid engine
Dan Aris, managing director, Libralato Limited, UK
The Libralato rotary hybrid engine is a compelling new concept of engine architecture and thermodynamic cycle, solving the problems of the Wankel engine (poor combustion, overheating, seal wear) through its exchange of gases between three dynamic chambers and its non-contact, long escape path, sealing. Predicted to be as efficient as a diesel engine (>40%) using gasoline, but 50% smaller and 30% lower cost, its key advantages are its exceptionally high, asymmetric, compression and expansion ratios and its integrated exhaust gas recirculation (<30% EGR) for ultra-low emissions. It enables PHEV systems to fit into standard engine bays, cost competitively.

12:50 Uhr - Active and passive in-duct acoustic characteristics of a turbocharger compressor
Isaac Jaimes, R&D engineer/PhD candidate, CRITTM2A, FRANCE
Turbochargers contribute to downsizing and allow constructors to respect increasingly severe emissions norms. However, the turbocharger behaves as an in-duct acoustic source in the air intake system, and has an influence on the acoustic waves travelling within it. The passive and active acoustic characteristics of the turbocharger can be used as a starting point for the design and development of acoustic devices in the air intake system, or as an input of acoustic 1D simulations of engine intake lines. In this paper, experimental techniques to measure the active and passive in-duct acoustic characteristics of a turbocharger are presented.

10:30 Uhr - Different hybrid possibilities and improving their efficiency
Reino Eskelinen, owner, Reino Race Consulting, GERMANY
The presentation will outline different hybrid systems, comparing their spec. energy and spec. power and showing which areas can be improved. It will also describe a completely new approach that combines an electrical system and a hydraulic one but with somewhat changed roles.

10:50 Uhr - Sustainable mobility with hydrogen: the internal combustion engine becomes green
Thomas Korn, CEO, Keyou GmbH, GERMANY
Today, the market demands a clean but also economical solution for transportation, preferably without any limitations. Keyou now brings the hydrogen combustion engine to a new level by creating an innovative concept that combines efficient injection, exhaust gas recirculation and turbocharging with a proprietary H2-SCR to eliminate any trace of NOx. Outcome: a powerful zero-emission vehicle with low modi?cation of the base engine. The results of this initial hydrogen-engine development programme will be presented, including an explanation of the engine adaptation package as well as the outcomes of all tests and simulations performed.

11:10 Uhr - Electric machine design for automotive and motorsport applications
Giuseppe Volpe, research engineer, Motor Design Ltd, UK
The presentation focuses on the electrical machines design process, with special attention given to how best to simulate real-life drive cycles and advanced losses prediction. This is explained through multiple automotive e-machine applications, such as the Nissan Leaf and other advanced high-performance machines designed and modelled using Motor-CAD. Motor-CAD is a complete and integrated electrical and thermal motor design technology. The software takes into account necessary design considerations required for individual motor types; together with an electromagnetic material database and cooling configurations, the tool maximises engineering inputs into the design decision-making process.

11:30 Uhr - Complex-shaped magnets manufactured with 100% recycled material
Carlo Burkhardt, managing director, OBE Ohnmacht & Baumgärtner GmbH & Co. KG, GERMANY
The speech introduces an innovative resource-efficient manufacturing process for rare earth magnets. The new production method allows the economically efficient production of net-shape magnetic parts with complex structures and geometrics while being 100% waste-free along the whole manufacturing chain, starting also from 100% recycled rare earth magnets. RE magnets produced in this way can be applied in a wide range of applications such as for electrical motors, sensors, actuators, grippers and fixations in the fields of (electro)mobility and many other sectors.

11:50 Uhr - Status of newest developments and testing tools for piston pins
Romain Montelimard, key account and project manager, HEF Durferrit, FRANCE
The new environmental standards and the latest investigations for better engine efficiency lead to new concepts and designs for moving parts in combustion engines. This leads to higher thermal and mechanical constraints on piston pins, where behaviour and lifetime prediction are a great challenge. For those reasons HEF Group, a world leader in surface engineering, decided to enlarge its knowledge and skills on piston pins with new coatings based on higher temperature resistance such as ta-C coatings, and also with new testing tools such as piston pins test rig for more representative and reliable investigations at lower costs.

12:10 Uhr - Sandvik Pressurfect tubes for gasoline direct injection systems
Jari Ponsiluoma, global product manager, Sandvik Materials Technology, SWEDEN
Pressurfect – developed for fuel rail and fuel line applications – are strong, stainless, seamless tubes that can master pressures for today’s engine designs. The standard Pressurfect tubes are made of austenitic chromium-nickel steel with low carbon content. For even higher demands, Pressurfect XP is an up to 40% lighter, even more advanced duplex stainless-steel tube with higher mechanical strength and superior corrosion resistance.

12:30 Uhr - MMC 225xe pistons and non-ferrous high thermal conductivity compression rings
Scott Bredda, technical director, Alcon Specialist Engineering & Products, UK
Engine downsizing and increasing specific output is a means of improving engine efficiency while maintaining performance. It is not without its problems, and metal matrix composite (MMC) pistons and high thermal conductivity compression rings can be used to extend the combustion system operating limits. Aluminium silicon carbide MMC, in particular 225xe, offers a number of advantages over conventional alloys, which can be exploited to improve combustion efficiency. Likewise, a non-ferrous copper-based alloy compression ring provides further opportunity to improve the combustion regime and ultimately reduce brake-specific fuel consumption.

12:50 Uhr - Dynamic torque measurement in engines test benches
Dr Leonard Klaus, head of working group, Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), GERMANY
The mechanical output power of engines or electric motors can be measured by means of torque and engine speed. Output power measurements are often required for the determination and to optimise the efficiency of engines. The torque output of a combustion engine, and of electric motors as well, can contain significant dynamic components. Up to now, no calibration procedures for the used sensors have existed. This presentation will give an overview of influences to be taken into account when carrying out measurements in test benches. It will also outline the state of the art in dynamic measurement of torque and rotational speed.
