Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) is a form of internal combustion in which well-mixed fuel and air are compressed to point of ignition. The argument for HCCI is to provide operating efficiency on par with diesel engines but its various challenges have prevented it from achieving wide commercial acceptance. Nevertheless, it is an engine technology worth understanding. This course covers the basic theory and operation of HCCI including its benefits and challenges, the hardware involved, and the electronic controls required.

Who Should Attend
The intended audience for this course is powertrain engineers, component suppliers, vehicle platform powertrain development specialists, and those involved in the application, design and discussion of engines.
Learners should have an undergraduate engineering degree and ideally a fundamental understanding of internal combustion engines, hydrocarbon based ignition and combustion theory and the mechanism of spark ignited and compression ignition engines.
