Teaching at IFP School in the programs Powertrain Engineering (PWT), Energie et Motorisations (MOT), Electrification de la Propulsion Automobile (EPA) continued.
Classworks in PWT and EPA continued. The software used for such purpose was maintained. With the arrival of a new IFP School teacher, the interface is about to be further simplified.
Coordination of the control teaching unit for the program Powertrain Engineering continued. A new instructor was recruited for the Transmission control lecture, as well as new supervisors for the end-of-year projects.
Internal IFPEN and IFP Training lectures reviewed.


Doctorate on optimal thermal management of hybrid-electric vehicles resumed. Refocused on the control of Rankine waste heat recovery systems and its implications on the hybrid energy management. The Ph.D. student Johan PERALEZ is co-supervised by Paolo TONA and Pascal DUFOUR, Univ. Lyon "Claude Bernard"

A new doctorate on energy management launched. The focus is on the real-time solution of optimal control problems with multiple states concerning energy efficiency. Applications include thermal management in hybrids, eco-driving, recharge of electric vehicle fleets. Djamaleddine MAAMRIA is supervised by Nicolas PETIT and François CHAPLAIS, Mines ParisTech.

Master's thesis of Marc Engeler, a student from ETH Zurich, launched. His work is focused on optimal pre-design of complex vehicle propulsion systems, with a coupling on energy management. Expected completion in Dec. 2012.
