- How to achieve the next steps in engine efficiency for hybrid vehicles by Dr. Richard Osborne, Global Technical Expert for Gasoline Combustion and Roscoe Sellers, Chief Engineer, Ricardo
With huge pressure on the powertrain to support a reduction in vehicle CO2, it is critical to leverage the most cost-effective benefits from the ongoing shift towards electrification. To support this goal, Ricardo has developed the Magma xEV engine concept to deliver a significant improvement in efficiency.
A new range of technology building blocks become available from powertrain hybridisation, and can be effectively combined by 1-D and 3-D analysis to maximise their contribution. In this 60-minute webinar, Dr. Richard Osborne, Ricardo Global Technical Expert for Gasoline Combustion and Roscoe Sellers, Ricardo Chief Engineer, showcase a path towards the next generation of ultra-high efficiency engines for electrified powertrains.
A key talking point will be the potential benefits of the selected engine architecture, combined with the assessed technology packages such as water injection, lean homogeneous combustion and corona discharge ignition.
