Fuel Pressure Modelling in a Common-Rail Direct Injection System (Mechanical/Electrical Project)

ABSTRACT

The fuel pressure is one of the central control variables of a modern common-rail injection system. It influences the generation of nitrous oxide and particulate matter emissions, the brake specific fuel consumption of Continue reading

Analysis and Implementation of Decimal Arithmetic Hardware In Nanometer CMOS Technology (Electrical Project)

Many scientific, engineering and commercial applications call for operations with real numbers. In many cases, a fixed-point numerical representation can be used. Nevertheless, this approach is not always feasible since the range that may be required is not always attainable with this method. Instead, floating-point numbers have proven to be an effective approach as they have the advantage of Continue reading

Optimally Fuel Efficient Speed Adaptation (Electronics/Electrical Project)

An optimal velocity trajectory for a heavy duty vehicle, obtained with the aid of modern GPS and digital map devices, depends on several variables. Curvature speed limitations, road grade, and posted road speed are common constraints imposed by the road travelled. This project presents a method for Continue reading

Modeling of the arterial system with an AVD implanted (Electrical/Biomedical Project)

The number of patients that are waiting for heart transplants far exceed the number of available donor hearts. Left Ventricular Assist Devices are mechanical alternatives that can help and are helping several patients. They work by taking blood from the left Continue reading
