Internship Event 2021 - JUL 3 2021
We present an overview of what has been achieved with the Gannet Internship program over the years, followed by four technical presentations.
All projects were done between Jan-Jun 2021 and entirely under the Gannet "Safe Lab" standards, using Remote access to the GL15 lab facility.
Internship program overview
Manjunath Peddakotla, Chief Engineer - Powertrain
Topic: Gannet Internships 2017-2021, Project Areas, Engineering departments involved, Projects Completed, Intro to 2021 Event presentations.
ABS Software Development
Shubham Kolpakar Vellore Institute of Technology
Matlab, Simulink, KVaser CAN devices, KVaser Database editor, Raptor, Silver
Antilock Braking System is a key Safety feature in most modern automobiles. Shubham presents his work on Software development for a Gannet ABS ECU (GCM70). He also presents on virtual validation of the ABS ECU using Silver.
XEV Vehicle Dynamics
Parameshwaran, SVCE, Chennai
Purushoth Kumar SVCE, Chennai
Most EVs and HEVs on the road today are conversions from IC Engine vehicles to an electrified powertrain and energy system. But has vehicle dynamics been taken care of, and how should we ensure stability of the Converted Electrified vehicle? The presenters address this with a modeling and simulation approach.
EV Plant Modeling
Presenter: Pramukh Bharadwaj, PES University
Tools: Modelon Impact
As automotive time-to-market reduces drastically coupled with the inceasing complexity as well as the growing presence of Electrified vehicles, plant modeling has become critical for early stage development. The presenter uses Modelon Impact to do Electric Range test and Maximum Performance/Acceleration Test entirely in the virtual environment.
HMI Development for Display device
Karthik Nagula, MAHE
Matlab, Simulink, Raptor, VeeCAN800 Display
An innovative HMI display device is developed specifically to test an ABS ECU (Antilock Brake system Electronic Control Unit). UI and HMI graphic development is discussed as well as the handling of CAN IO for HIL (Hardware-in-Loop) testing of the ECU.
Internship Event 2020 - JUL 4 2020
This event was a first for Gannet and first for the industry as well, where Student interns were given an opportunity to promote their work and themselves to the wider professional community.
We presented four technical presentations out of over a dozen different projects that were done between Jan-Jun 2020. The students worked in the Gannet GL15 Lab in Bangalore till March 2020 and completed their work remotely (due to the COVID crisis) in our first Virtual Internship effort.
MBD approach for Datalogger development
Anand Raj, Controls Engineer
(Anand was mentor to multiple interns who contributed to this project and couldn't present due to network difficulties.)
Matlab, Simulink, Raptor, VeeCAN800 hardware, KVaser USB-CAN devises and software
An innovative datalogger is developed using Modelbased development approaches, capable of CAN data logging, CAN monitoring of vehicle signals. HMI display and UI control development is covered, as well as handling of USB devices and Database files. Finally the implementation is done on actual hardware.
MODEL BASED CALIBRATION OF ENGINES USING DOE
Sanjai Kannan, PSG COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY
Using the Simulated Engine data and Gannet calG (Accelerated calibration platform), the critical emissions for this Engine – NOx and Soot are optimized at local points and for the Emission cycles. From this approach, multiple solutions are created for achieving Emission cycle NOx and soot results. From these calibration solutions, Input parameter maps for each solution (Main injection timing, Fuel pressure, Boost pressure and Mass air flow) are prepared to flash into ECU and test it on engine.
ENGINE MODEL SELECTION FOR CALIBRATION
ARJUN SIVASANKAR, MANIPAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Different Numerical methods of Engine modelling are applied to Engine simulation data to select the right model for each response of Engine. These selected models can be used in Engine calibration to achieve good results and very much close to real world results.
The mathematical modeling methods used are Linear polynomial regression and Gaussian process – Matern kernel and RBF kernel. Using the steady state Part throttle performance data of entire engine operating zone, steady state emission cycle data and Transient cycle data are considered.
By using this methodology, the right models for each responses can be selected for a particular engine and can be used for Engine calibration at different test conditions. Using calG, created multiple calibration solutions for the engine using linear polynomial model.
OPTIMISATION OF ENGINE OUT EMISSIONS USING BOX BEHNKEN AND RESPONSE SURFACE APPROACH
Presenter: Delina Rajakumari, PSG COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY
Engine testing time and optimization time reduction is the main focus.
- For Engine testing, various Design of experiments designs are studied. Box Behnken design and Plackett Burman design are applied for global and local design of Engine respectively.
- For Engine optimization, Manual calibration is performed using Gannet calG and Engine test data for creating multiple solutions to validate on Engine. Creating each manual solution in calG is very quick and cost effective compared to Manual solution development in Engine test cell.
