Gasoline Engine Management

3 days MOT/CME-E
  • Engineers and technical staff from design and testing departments wishing to know the main components and functions of the SI engine management.
  • To know in the case of spark ignition engines:
  • the different functions related to air supply, fuel supply and combustion
  • the sensors and the actuators related to each of these functions and how to use them
  • the strategies used.
Learning Objectives
  • To have an overview of the gasoline engine control system.
  • To have the necessary elements to diagnose some simple failure modes.
  • To be able to talk to specialists to understand and make control strategies evolve.
Ways and means
  • Interactive training with real life examples.
