TITLE: Opportunities and Challenges in Automotive Powertrain Control
TIME: 13:30~15:00, 21/10/2015
LOCATION: The center meeting room of library
SPEAKER: Tielong Shen,Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan

    In order to satisfy the strict performance requirement of torque generation and emission, electronic real-time control is now spotlighted as an effective technology in automotive industry. However, modeling and control of the powertrains such as traditional combustion engines, hybridized with electric machines, especially during transient mode, are challenging issues. This talk introduces the recent trend in automotive powertrain control technologies, and address some case studies of modeling and control designs. Also, two benchmark examples provided by academic societies will be explained which provide an opportunity for the students who are interesting on the topic.. 

    Tielong Shen received the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Sophia University, Japan. From April 1992, he has been a faculty member of the Chair of Control Engineering in Department of Mechanical Engineering, Sophia University, where he currently serves as full Professor. Since 2005, he is also served concurrently “Luojia Xuezhe” Chair Professor of Wuhan University, and Visiting Professor for several universities including University of Science and Technology of China, Yanshan University, etc. He also joined Newcastle University, Australia, as Visiting Fellow in 2003, and University of Rome “Tar Vergata”, Italy, as Visiting Professor, in 2009. 
    His research interests include control theory and applications in automotive systems, power systems, and mechanical systems. From 1997, he has been serving as Chief Editor, Regional Editor, Associate Editors, and Guest Editors for several international journals including Transaction of SICE, Japan, International Journal of Modeling, Identification and Control, International Journal on Robust and Nonlinear Control, Asian Journal of Control, Control Theory and Technology, and The IEEE Control System Society Conference Editorial Board. 
    Dr. Shen was also serving as Chairs/co-chairs for many international conferences. He is now serving as General Chair of CCC&SICE2015, and Publicity Chair of ECC2015. He is currently a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Automotive Control and IFAC Technical Committee on Automotive System Control. 
Dr. Shen has author/co-authored eleven text books in Japanese, English and Chinese, respectively, and has published more than 140 research papers in peer-reviewed major journals.
