报告人：Prof. Kyoungdoug Min (Seoul National University)
Kyoungdoug Min is currently Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Seoul National University in South Korea. He received his PhD at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1994, and joined Seoul National University since 1997. He serves as Co-Chair, IEA (International Energy Agency) IA (Implementing Agreement) Energy Conservation and Emission Reductions in Combustion (2011.8- ), editor for International Journal of Automotive Technology, (2009-present), associate Editor for Journal of Mechanical Sciences and Technology, (2007-2016), and he is also elected SAE Fellow. He has published 110 Papers in International Journals and 123 Papers in the International Conference Proceedings.
As CO2 regulations of passenger vehicles in each country are getting more stringent, battery electric vehicle and fuel cell electric vehicle are more attractive to OEMs due to zero CO2 emission based on tank-to-wheel and super credit. Also a dozen cities and several countries have announced that ICE vehicles will be phased out or banned. But no countries have passed a law banning the ICE vehicles, yet. In order to truly reduce CO2 emission from passenger vehicles globally, CO2 regulation on passenger vehicles based on well-to-wheel or life cycle assessment (LCA) should be considered. This talk will touch the global CO2 and exhaust emissions regulations, outlook for future powertrains mix in 2030. Internal combustion engines including HEV will be mainstream in the future. Several key technologies which substantially improve the engine thermal efficiency will be introduced. Further designed fuels or PtX (Power-to-X) fuels based on CO2 neutral electrical energy should be developed to improve more engine efficiency and reduce harmful emissions, then internal combustion engines will produce near zero CO2 emission.
