Engine Emissions Measurement

About the course

What will I learn?
This course is directed at both emissions legislation compliance, and at engine and catalyst development for low emissions. Passenger car emissions legislation measurement requirements are fully detailed for ultra-low emission SI and diesel vehicles. Heavy duty diesel emissions legislation measurement methods for on-road and off-road engine uses are fully described, including the latest European proposals for measurement of particle number as well as mass. The specialist areas of time-resolved emissions in test cycles for emissions control engine development is also covered in detail. The accurate determination of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption from the legislated test cycles is a major theme of the course.

The course also covers the fast growing area of in-vehicle emissions measurement for real world driving emissions measurement. Several areas are covered that are currently not regulated in Europe but are in the USA and may be regulated in future in Europe. This includes VOC speciation for ozone forming potential evaluation as well as air toxics and PAH speciation of diesel articulates for carcinogenic toxic emissions evaluations.

The programme also includes latest developments, techniques and implications of EPA1065/1066.

How will I benefit?
This is a specialist short course, and you’ll benefit from extensive participation by lecturers from Horiba Instruments who aim to teach you the latest developments in automotive and industrial engine emissions measurement procedures and regulation compliance procedures.

Who should attend?

This course is for you if you’re an engine emissions measurement personnel or supervisor. It’s particularly suitable if you’re a newly appointed staff member in these areas and you need to learn quickly about emissions measurement methods. It’s also relevant if you’re an operator of diesel and gas turbine electric generation equipment and you have to make emissions measurements, perhaps for the first time, under the Environmental Protection Act. It will be of interest if you wish to learn about the latest developments in emissions measurement technology.

It will also be relevant if you’re an engine gas analysis system designer. It will be of particular relevance if you’ve recently been made responsible for engine emissions measurement and you need information on the design and operation of these systems. It’s also suitable if you’re involved in data processing of emissions measurements. Applications will be discussed in spark ignition, diesel and gas turbine engines.

What our delegates say

“A great course for anyone who wants or needs a broad understanding of what is involved in tackling vehicle emissions and meeting legislation”.  Vehicle Certification Agency

“This course was great!  As an engineer directly involved in emissions measurement this course greatly increased my knowledge of the industry I work in, as well as the equipment I would with every day.  It provided a great deal of technical information, instrument theory, regulation background and history as well as real world problems that I deal with on a daily basis.  I highly recommend this course.” Nissan

“Arrived with limited knowledge. Improved my understanding of emissions.” Honda UK
