Advanced Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Technology - GDT2
CPE Credits Awarded:
This three-day course discusses the future fuelling options for the current road transport market. Environmental considerations, including air quality concerns open the proceedings. Products types discussed will include conventional fuels, plus bio based alcohols, ethers, bio vegetable oils and their derivatives. Their qualities, specifications, blending performance and suitability will be described. Supply and demand considerations will be covered. Basic engineering demands of the gasoline and diesel powertrains and the quality needs of future fuels will be highlighted. New technologies for "conventional" powertrains and after-treatment systems will also receive attention. Other future fuelling scenarios including electric, solar, hybrid and hydrogen powered vehicles will be discussed.
What you will learn
- The change in emphasis from simply controlling vehicle emissions to improving air quality
- Retrospective of the fuel changes that have already taken place or are proposed
- The "political" nature of fuel specifications
- Fuel characteristics and their influence on emissions
- Biofuels - curse or cure?
- The challenge of new engine and after-treatment technologies
- Alternative powertrains
Please note: Advanced Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Technology is the natural follow-up to the Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Technology (GDT1) course, which introduces the fundamentals of gasoline and diesel fuel technology. This course looks in greater depth at the issues outlined above.
