8th AVL Large Engines TechDays

Electrification, New Fuels and Power Sources: Boom or Doom for Large Engines?
Register

The large engine application more and more is challenged by multiple factors. A new chapter of engine efficiency has just been started while global and local emission regulations still push the limits of traditional engine development including exhaust gas aftertreatment. Customers require robust solutions with a maximum fuel flexibility – be it Diesel fuel, natural gas, any kind of alcohols or hydrogen, mainly driven by fuel price.
 

Especially for marine and mobile applications, the challenge will be to intelligently integrate the combustion engines into complex systems side by side with batteries, fuel cells and other power sources.


 

Topic

Being successful in the long run will mean to adjust with all those new challenges and to provide integrated, tailored solutions for every customer.
AVL’s 8th Large Engines TechDays will focus on the multitude of aspects of challenges of electrification and hybridization, new fuels and competitive power sources and will be a platform to discuss the various approaches of OEMs, operators and suppliers to be successful in the future.


Main Topics for the Technical Sessions

Engine Technology

  • Next level fuel efficiency & ultra-low emissions
  • Alternative fuels & fuel flexibility
  • Aftertreatment strategies & technologies


Complementary Technologies

  • Potential of electrification and hybridization
  • Battery & fuel cell technology
  • System integration and system optimization

AVL Large Engines

Over the last 60 years, AVL has engineered around 100 large engines for all major applications, such as ships, power plants, locomotives and compressors. Worldwide, AVL has the most experienced independent engineering team in the industry with a wide range of development expertise. This enables AVL to design completely new large engines, from the first sketch to the finished product. Advanced simulation, efficient engineering methods and innovative technologies pave the way to higher product efficiency and quality.

AVL’s global engineering expertise in the field of powertrain integration results in efficient and comprehensive solutions for optimizing the entire performance – under consideration of the boundary conditions of the customer. It is about taking into consideration the engine and the additional applicationspecific systems of conventional and electrified systems while anticipating the challenges of less emissions and cost.

On the single-cylinder research test bed at the Large Engines Competence Center in Graz emission and fuel consumption technologies for the year 2016 and beyond are already being studied by AVL. Furthermore, AVL continuously proves its innovator role with regard to complex environments thanks to new applications and methodologies.
