    Abstract

    Nei prossimi anni è richiesta una riduzione delle emissioni dei veicoli su strada a livello mondiale ed il rispetto delle normative vigenti deve essere raggiunto. Questa invenzione mira a ridurre il consumo di carburante e le emissioni di gas di scarico dei veicoli ibridi elettrici (HEV) implementando un sistema di gestione dell'energia in tempo reale in grado di adattarsi in modo ottimale allo stile di guida dell'utente attuale. Il sistema integra un algoritmo avanzato che apprende il comportamento di guida di ogni utente al fine di adattare in modo ottimale la strategia di controllo del gruppo propulsore elettrificato. La strategia di controllo HEV personalizzata può essere scaricata direttamente nell'unità di controllo del veicolo mediante un processo di riconoscimento del conducente e può quindi essere utilizzata per tutto il percorso di guida. L'invenzione potrebbe rivelarsi economicamente vantaggiosa in quanto potrebbe supportare le case automobilistiche al rispettare i limiti di emissioni imposti dalla legge, evitando così le sanzioni economiche previste dalla normativa vigente. Ulteriori vantaggi potrebbero essere ottenuti in termini di risparmio di carburante, rendendo così l'invenzione attraente anche dal punto di vista del consumatore.Un prototipo totalmente virtuale della tecnologia proposta è stato sviluppato all’interno di un progetto di ricerca risultato vincitore nella competizione europea TRAVISIONS 2020 Categoria Road (European Union’s Horizon 2020 grant no. 824293): https://www.travisions.eu/TRAVisions/young_researcher_results_2020/Il presente progetto di sviluppo della tecnologia è attualmente oggetto di interesse di AVL Italia Srl, la quale dichiara il supporto alla presente attività attraverso la condivisione di metodologie e la fornitura di dati sperimentali necessari alla validazione della tecnologia stessa.

    Abstract

    The development of HD engines undergoes a rapid step in its evolution. Increased demand for fuel efficiency, emissions and global competition are driving forces. The HD (Heavy-Duty) engines operate under constraints much more severe than those of passenger cars such as:-higher durability (up to 1.000.000 km) of the engine and of the related aftertreatment,-higher mechanical and thermal stress of the engine (heavier load factor)-higher pressure on reliability, investment and fuel economyThe above constraints characterize the HD engines for their more general applications: not only trucks and urban vehicles but also the rail traction and the inland waterway vessels of the directive 2002/765.New technologies will help us meeting future emission and fuel consumption targets by:-a new combustion process enabled by variable components;-new control strategies-considering the engine and the exhaust after treatment as ONE system;-considering sustainable fuelsThe main objective of GREEN is to perform research leading to sub-systems for a heavy-duty engine. The objectives should be achieved with strict boundary conditions for: i) a competitive cost base, ii) highest fuel conversion efficiency of the Diesel cycle, to achieve near-zero real world pollutant emissions and significant reduction of CO2.The project put emphasis on diesel engines for trucks and rail applications and on natural gas engines for city transport applications. The combination of innovation and durability is strongly supported. The research targets have been chosen to look beyond all legislation known today. Targeting possible sharpening after year 2010 with focus on near zero real world emission (for Diesel NOx 0.5 g/kWh, PM 0.002g/kWh, ETC Cycle BSFC=204 g/kWh and for natural gas corresponding targets are set).

    Abstract

    Movement is at the heart of any city. Urban mobility faces significant challenges from two global megatrends: growing urbanisation and ageing population. Light electric vehicles (EL-Vs) could represent a viable solution to traffic congestion and pollution in cities. However, their successful integration into the urban transport system requires a clear understanding of the individual consumer needs.By involving human science and transportation specialists, the STEVE partners have developed a framework to interpret these forces. Focus will be on mature cities of medium size (Torino: 800.000 inhabitants, Villach 60.000, Calvi 60.000, Venaria 35.000), where STEVE will generate data to support the design of next generation EL Vs, and provoke the mind-shift necessary for swift market penetration of them.The primary idea of STEVE is to implement and test a human-centric approach to electro-Mobility-as-a-Service (eMaaS), according to the Move2Me vision of the consortium. This will provide low-cost and financially sustainable EL V solutions and gamified services, to enhance users awareness, engagement and vehicle energy efficiency.A core item of STEVE is a low-cost electric quadricycle developed by a worldwide OEM in Turin, with start-of-production expected in 2018 at a market price of 8000. The quadricycle will integrate high-technology contents with respect to the current competitors, and will be pilot-tested, together with many other EL-Vs, during extensive demonstration phases in the four STEVE citiesSTEVE will guarantee a strong impact in terms of business development and jobs, and enhance the European competitiveness in the eMaaS sector while also leveraging Manufacturing.The consortium will also give a primary role to SMEs: while large enterprises will provide the underlying technologies, the services will be mainly designed and operated by SMEs, deeply involved in the local supply chains and adaptable to the specific customers needs.

    Abstract

    The Transportation sector employs over 10 million persons in the EU today. At the same time, Transport is a social sector that is rapidly developing, changing and being influenced to the maximum extent by the development of automation, electrification and greening of transport, among others, thus facing problems in staffing its several domains with appropriate and qualified personnel. This fact, makes the need for changes in training and education content, curricula, tools and methodologies absolutely imperative, incorporating lifelong learning aspects for the professionals in all transports areas. SKILLFUL vision is to identify the skills and competences needed by the Transport workforce of the future and define the training methods and tools to meet them. For all the above trends, employability will be strongly connected by SKILLFUL to future transport job requirements for all transportation modes and multimodal chains (which constitute a key transport of the future trend) and for all levels/types of workers, while all training modes will be included and integrated in a balanced way. To achieve this, SKILLFUL aims to review the existing, emerging and future knowledge and skills requirements of workers at all levels in the transportation sector, to structure the key specifications and components of the curricula and training courses that will be needed to meet these competence requirements optimally and to identify and propose new business roles in the education and training chain, such as those of knowledge aggregator, training certifier and training promoter, in order to achieve European wide competence development. Project results are verified through s wide number of Pilots with low to high skilled workers from all transportation modes Europewide.

  • Knocking investigation on high efficient flex-fuel (liquid & gaseous biofuels) engine - part.2, (2016-2016) - Responsabile Scientifico

    Corporate-funded and donor-funded research

    Abstract

    The overall goal of the research is to promote the parallel development of future powertrain systems and advance biofuel products (HVO, BTL, LC Ethanol, Biomethane, DME, Hydrogen, blends of Biomethane and H2) so as to achieve optimal performance in terms of pollutant emissions and GHG levels on a WTW basis. An innovative engine platform is required, capable of enabling a wide flexibility in adapting the combustion process to the specific characteristics of the fuel blend, thus maintaining the optimum conditions in terms of efficiency and pollutant reduction. In this context, a number of key topics has to be addressed: the identification of the biofuels for highly efficient SI engines featuring virtually zero engine-out emissions; the impact of biofuel blending on combustion; the combustion characteristics of alternative fuels, adaptability of engine performance to changes in fuel quality; on-board fuel quality sensing systems; powertrain calibrations for multiple fuel operating schemes.

    Abstract

    In order to realize sustainable mobility in Europe, both urban and long distance vehicles for road transport will have to be significantly more efficient by 2020 and a considerable contribution will have to come from the energy efficiency improvement of the powertrain. Moreover, together with the progressive efficiency increase coming from the engine technology evolution, the use of Low-Carbon Alternative Fuels, such as Natural Gas, will play a fundamental role to accelerate the process of decarbonization of the transportation sector that in Europe is targeted for the 2050 time horizon. In this context, being well-known the benefits of the Natural Gas Vehicles adoption in Europe, this proposal aims to exploit the main benefits of gas-powered engines developing CNG-only, mono-fuel-engines able to comply with: post Euro 6 noxious emissions 2020 CO2 emissions targets new homologation cycle and Real Driving conditions and simultaneously improving engine efficiency and vehicle performance also with regard to its CNG range capability. These engines, based on new combustion processes, require also dedicated technological solutions for: Innovative injection, ignition and boosting system concepts Advanced exhaust gas aftertreatment system Detecting the gas-quality and its compositionThe results obtained from the experimental activities on the demonstration vehicles and engines will be harmonized and analysed throughout a final overall assessment of the different approaches. The demonstrator vehicles will be assessed in terms of performance and emissions with regard to NEDC, WLTP and under real driving conditions. Moreover, the final assessment of the vehicles will be certified, as independent testing, by JRC (Joint Research Centre) which will carry out additional measurements in their own testing facilities both on chassis dyno and by means of PEMS (Portable Emissions Measurement System).
