Announcing a one day course on physics model based control methodology for Exhaust Aftertreatment System (EAS). TNO has 20 years’ experience in model based control design, development and application.
TNO's SIMCAT is a control-oriented Matlab/Simulink based aftertreatment modelling tool. It provides an end-to-end solution. The same SIMCAT aftertreatment component models are used off-line for control design and optimization and are embedded on the actual control unit without any loss of accuracy. Here the 300x faster than real-time computation and low memory footprint provide a unique solution. The applied physics-based modelling approach provides both scalability and robustness to the aftertreatment control logic.
The basic layout of the day is:
This course is intended for automotive engineers with a background in controls or aftertreatment calibration. A basic Matlab/Simulink modelling experience is strongly advised.
This one day workshop will provide attendees with an introduction into state of the art physics based aftertreatment modelling and model-based control. Focus will be on SCR catalyst modelling and SCR dosing controls. Attendees will gather hands-on-experience on topics of aftertreatment simulation and model-based control calibration with use of the SIMCAT software.
The tool was used for production control software, evaluation of control strategies, EPA 23 studies, after treatment robustness evaluation, controls calibration, and many other applications. All participants will receive a copy of the lecture notes and will get access to a free trial copy of the SIMCAT software.
The workshop location will be close to the SAE premises in Detroit and will be announced in due time. Date of workshop will be Monday, April 9th, 2018. From 9am-5pm. Lunch will be provided.
Sudarshan Ramesh received his MSc in Automotive engineering in 2014 from Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. In 2014, he joined the Powertrain department of TNO Automotive where he is currently a technical specialist in developing physics based aftertreatment and engine models to be used in controls for real time implementation. He has been involved in various (international) projects on clean diesel technologies and has made several contributions to international conferences on the topic of aftertreatment modelling and control.
