Chat with the Experts: Energy Management Controls for Electrified Vehicles (PFLCHAT130)
Chat with the Experts: Biodiesel Role as an Advanced Biofuel under Renewable Fuel Standard -- 2 (PFLCHAT231)
Powertrain electrification is a promising technology for improving automotive fuel economy. Control system design plays an important role in managing energy flow through the vehicle, and electrified powertrains afford more degrees of freedom to optimize the overall system. Significant interest has surrounded this topic in recent years. This chat will review the energy management problem as applied to electrified powertrains and discuss some of the recent advances in this field.
Under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2009 (RFS-2), companies that refine or import fuel are required to incorporate increasing amounts of renewable fuels. Only advanced renewable fuels providing a 50% or higher life cycle reduction in carbon that have an EPA approved production path are eligible. This chat will overview volume requirements and show how biodiesel represents a low-cost option for meeting RFS-2 requirements.
