Technische Universitaet Graz
The work packages at Technische Universitaet Graz will be carried out by two organisations, the Large Engines Competence Center (LEC) and the Institute of Electrical Measurement and Measurement Signal Processing at the Graz University of Technology (EMT-TUG).
The Large Engines Competence Center (LEC) is a research area at the Institute for Internal Combustion Engines and Thermodynamics at Graz University of Technology. Research activities at the LEC focus on the area of large engines, in particular engines for power generation and for ship and locomotive propulsion. The primary objective is to develop advanced combustion processes for this category of engines with the highest efficiencies and simultaneously minimal emissions and maximal power output. To this end, the LEC uses its own special methodology based on the intensive interaction of simulation and experimental investigations on single-cylinder research engines. Work is being done to develop the simulation models necessary for the most realistic pre-calculation of the engine working cycle and metrological procedures for improved analysis. Further areas of emphasis include the detailed investigation of injection processes for liquid and gaseous fuels, heat management for passenger cars and lubricants.
The Institute of Electrical Measurement and Measurement Signal Processing at the Graz University of Technology (EMT-TUG) has long standing experiences in the development and implementation of sensors and electronics in automotive and industrial environments. EMT-TUG has hosted a Christian-Doppler-Laboratory for Automotive Measurement Technology and has contributed to European Projects in the 5th and 6th Framework Program. Currently, EMT-TUG is partner of an EraSME project and coordinates several national research projects in various fields ranging from capacitive sensor design to the development of hybrid technologies for the automotive sector.
