Inject your ideas, fuel your technology
Internal Combustion, Electric Vehicles and Hybrids
The automotive industry must continue to meet the demands of future environmental requirements and develop alternative powertrains to lower carbon dioxide emissions. In the short-term internal combustion engines need to be made more efficient, either as the sole power unit, or for specific applications such as hybrids and range extenders. The fuel system has a major influence on optimising combustion efficiency and for manufacturers to excel, there must be further research and develop of fuel systems to guarantee the best engine performance, ensuring minimal emissions and maximum fuel economy. More cost-effective solutions for hybrid diesel or gasoline fuel systems may be feasible.
The next conference in this prestigious series on Fuel Systems Engines will focus on the latest technology for state-of-the-art system design, characterisation, measurement, and modelling, addressing all technological aspects of diesel and gasoline fuel injection systems. This will range from fundamental fuel spray theory, component design, to effects on engine performance, fuel economy and emissions.
TOPICS TO BE COVERED INCLUDE:
- Fuel injection component design, both diesel, gasoline and hybrid
- Effects of fuel injection system on spray formation and propagation
- Effects of fuel injection system on engine performance and emissions
- Calibration and optimisation
- System integration
- Fuel system measuring techniques, development and manufacturing
- Engine and vehicle controls
- General modelling methods for dynamic performance prediction, especially in high-pressure fluids and multiphase regimes
- CFD applied to FIE and fuel air mixing
- Large engine fuel injection systems
- Fuel filtration
- Diagnostics and service experience
- Exhaust/After-treatment injection systems
- Fuel formulation for achieving optimum injection
- Low lubricity fuels
