EU project VISION-xEV
Mihai Mihaescu participating in a new European project on efficient power trains.
The major challenge that the European automotive industry is facing is the 2020 CO2 fleet emission target of 95g/km and the envisaged further reduction of the CO2 emission limits in the European Union for the period after 2025. the VISION-xEV addresses chalanges related to development of effient and envirinmental friendly power trains.
KTH's contributions to the project are:
- to provide guidance for an optimal turbine-engine integration aimed to maximize performance and minimize losses under pulsating engine-relevant operating conditions.
- to develop accurate methods for analyzing aerothermodynamic related losses and associated mechanisms in the exhaust manifold and turbine.
