Fuel Management Strategies and Systems

Fuel Management Strategies and Systems

A 1-Day Class

As the last remaining efficiency gains are squeezed from the internal combustion engine, it is critically important for engineering and technical support staff working on the design, development, application and testing of engines to understand the modern fuel economy and emissions reduction strategies. This course targets engine design engineers, analysts, technical managers, test engineers, and car enthusiasts.  It is designed to impart a deeper understanding of the technologies behind the various engine design and operation techniques associated with fuel injection, injection technologies, timing and fuel management as a function of emissions.  Learners can expect to gain an understanding of the base technologies and implementing hardware.  They should also be able to review related technical literature and evaluate the claimed merits from the understanding of the base technology. 

 

Learning Objectives 

By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate: 

  • Fuel management system technologies 
  • Fuel injection strategies 
  • Fuel injection and fuel injector hardware 
  • Closed-loop control based on emission production 
  • Benefits of atomization and vaporization on fuel management 
  • Effect on vaporization of atomization techniques 
  • The merits of fuel management strategies in technical literature and critically evaluate them 

 

Who Should Attend 

This is an intermediate course intended for anyone with a general proficiency or practical understanding of current internal combustion technology and systems.  The material covered in this course is targeted at several design and engineering disciplines including, but not limited to:  

  • Design engineers and engineering managers 
  • Automotive engine designers 
  • Component suppliers 
  • Engine test and development engineers 
  • Design services managers 
  • Car enthusiasts and shade-tree mechanics 

 

Prerequisites 

Because this course is targeted at several design and engineering disciplines, learners should have a B.S. in engineering or related field and preferably a minimum of two years design experience in automotive fuel systems.
