Research projects

The main research topic in the project concerns how a priori information regarding the future trip can be acquired and utilized to improve PHEV energy efficiency. The research covers aspects such as quasi static powertrain modeling, convex optimization and optimal control techniques such as Dynamic Programming...
 
The objective of the ID4EV project is to develop energy efficient and safe brake and chassis systems for the needs of fully electric vehicles and the improvement of active safety and comfort for a faster introduction of fully electric vehicles (FEV)...
 
The project will study the method of HILS certification issued in Japan. The aim is to build knowledge in the area for understanding the requirements that need to be placed on a HILS type-approval method. In addition to studies of the method, the project should generate simulation models for suitable for HILS...
 
 
This project investigates the use of information from crankshaft torque and ion current measurements for closed-loop diesel engine control. A large portion of the work therefore consists of developing methods for extracting combustion information from the measured signals...
