Advanced Powertrain Systems Overview

students working with Dr. Filipi

There are several strategic research areas within advanced powertrains: optimization of hybrid powertrain layout and operating strategy, advanced internal combustion engine concepts, emissions aftertreatment modeling and control, battery pack control and diagnostics, electric powertrains, model-based control,  and improving energy efficiency using vehicle connectivity.

Students who chose to specialize in this area will study at a number of topics related to reducing the environmental impact and cost of ground vehicle powertrains. Courses offered in this area include a mix of fundamental principles, modeling and simulation, control system development, powertrain calibration, sub-system and component design, and extensive laboratory experiences.
