1D Powertrain Modeling

5 days MOT/MS1D-E
  • Engineers, managers and technicians working in the field of powertrains, interested in 1D modeling and simulation for engines and gearboxes. Such techniques contribute to digitally design architectures, systems, parts and controls that constitute the powertrain.
