报告题目：Some Control Issues in Automotive Powertrains
摘要：As propulsion system of ground vehicles, the powertrain is a large-scale mass production that involve digital control devices, e.g. electric control unit (ECU). Common objectives of powertrain control are the energy efficiency, the emission and the drivability. However, due to the difficulty in modeling, uncertainties in the system dynamics and the operating environment, and unpredictability or stochasticity in the driver’s demand and traffic environment the powertrain control is a very challenging task for practice of system control theory. This talk will give a brief overview on background of powertrain control issues. Then, a couple of control applications selected from the speaker’s practice of academic-industrial collaboration will be presented such as learning control of combustion engine starting from idling-stop, sparking time control, energy efficiency optimal control of connected vehicles.
个人简介：Tielong Shen is a Full Professor in control engineering at Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan. He received his Bachelor and Master Degree in Engineering from Northeast Heavy Machinery Institute, China, and PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from Sophia University 1992. From April of 1992, he joined Sophia University as Assistant Professor with Tenure, where he is currently chairing Shen Laboratory. His research interests include control theory and applications in automotive powertrain systems, power systems, and mechanical systems. In 2005, his laboratory founded transient control engine testbench and started long-term academic-industrial collaborative research on advanced engine control technology with Toyota automotive Corporation. Dr. Shen has author/co-authored eleven text books in Japanese, English and Chinese, respectively, and has published more than 200 research papers in peer-reviewed major journals. He has served SICE, TCCT of CAA, IFAC and IEEE as Chair/vice-chair including General Chair of SICE&CCC2015, IPC Chair of IFAC AAC2016 etc. He is currently a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Automotive Control and IFAC Technical Committee on Automotive System Control.He is currently serving as general chair of SICE Annual Conference 2021, and general chair of IFAC Conference on Engine Control, Simulation, and Modeling (IFAC E-COSM) 2021.
