Desarrollo e implementación de un centro de competencia para investigación, pruebas y validación de emisiones en conducción real


Oferta Tecnológica
Una universidad alemana ha solicitado financiación para un proyecto nacional con el fin de desarrollar e implementar un nuevo centro de ensayos y metodologías de investigación reproducible y eficiente en sistemas de propulsión, con especial énfasis en los requisitos del reglamento sobre emisiones en conducción real (RDE). La universidad busca socios industriales, preferiblemente pymes, con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica e investigación para participar en el proyecto y beneficiarse de los resultados, así como para participar en proyectos europeos futuros en este campo.


Development and implementation of a competence centre for real driving emission research, testing and validation
A German university is applying for a nationally funded project to develop and implement an innovative test centre and methodologies for reproducible and efficient research on powertrains with focus on the high requirements that arise with real driving emission (RDE) legislation. Industry partners, preferably SMEs are sought for technical and research cooperation to join the project as associated partners to benefit from the results and to participate in future EU projects on the topic.
The development, testing and certification of drive trains and their components under quasi-stationary laboratory conditions leads to the currently widely discussed deviations of measured and real pollutant emissions. European legislation responds to this with the introduction of pollutant and fuel consumption limits under real road conditions, the so-called real driving emissions (RDE). For the developers of drive trains this means a significantly increased number of random variables in the examination of the development objectives, with the consequences of an increased measurement effort and high uncertainties in certification. In particular, at an early stage of development, not all relevant influencing variables can be considered, leading to a late and thus complex validation process.

An interdisciplinary consortium of three institutes at a German university initiates a proposal for a nationally funded project to develop and implement a competence centre for RDE. The real driving emissions competence centre pursues the goal to develop and implement a research infrastructure, which allows efficient, reproducible and realistic road conditions to be taken into account in the development of low-pollutant and fuel-efficient powertrains throughout the entire process. In addition, the processes to be developed allow comparable investigations to be independent of external influences. The RDE competence centre aims to redefine the concept of "laboratory conditions", which has a negative connotation in the context of powertrain development, by transferring the degrees of freedom from road to test rig, while at the same time creating an optimal, reproducible development environment. The competence centre will be integrated into an existing joint research centre and will thus be used to further develop the existing infrastructure for research and development of complex electrified drivetrains in the sense of the holistic strategy concept at the university with focus on energy efficiency and climate change. In the medium term, the initiative is pursuing the goal of researching the technology for halving the mobility-related consumption of fossil energy sources. At the same time, CO2 emissions and dependence on oil and gas are minimized. The long-term vision is the emission-free drive system for sustainable energy supply. Up to now, the equipment of the current research centre only allows investigations under strongly limited, quasi-stationary ambient conditions.

The above-mentioned discussions on real drive emissions require a reconsideration of powertrain development and thus an adaptation of the infrastructure conditions. Within this concept, an existing test cell of the centre is to be upgraded and methods are derived in order to be able to research, develop and certify hybridized and electric drive trains over the complete development process under real road conditions. Apart from investing in the conditioning units, this project includes the development of the control concepts as well as the integration of the test stand into a real-time network and thus into a complex RDE environment simulation. In addition to the direct effects of the pollutant and low fuel consumption powertrains investigated and developed in the RDE competence centre on the real emissions, the development and description of an efficient, reproducible and RDE-compliant development and certification process is the most important result of the project.

Thus, the consortium is searching for industry partners for technical and research cooperation, preferably SMEs that are interested in participating as associated partners, who may use the outcome of the project and who are interested in the results.

The university is furthermore planning to submit a project on this topic at EU level within the next H2020 calls. Here SMEs from all over Europe could be integrated as full partners. Interested parties are welcome to express an interest and shape ideas.
