The aim of Research Group 2401 is to make the future-oriented low-temperature combustion (LTV) in combustion engines technically usable by means of innovative control concepts. The research group is pursuing a novel interdisciplinary approach from the fields of chemistry, combustion and control engineering. Using the optimization-based multi-scale approach of FOR2401, the control loop of the LTV is closed both from cycle to cycle and also within a combustion cycle. As a result, the stability of the autoregressive LTV process can be increased and emissions can be reduced while simultaneously increasing efficiency.
Starting in winter semester 2022/23, the Hardware-in-the-Loop Laboratory for Mobile Propulsion Systems will be offered at the Teaching and Research Area Mechatronics in Mobile Propulsion (MMP). The course is interdisciplinary and addresses students in the Master programs of various subject areas.
