AMET

External consultant

Torino, Italy - January 2018 - May 2018

Responsible for data analysis and model development for weight estimation of the main components, such as the engine, e-machine and battery and transmission, of an plug-in hybrid electric sport utility vehicle. The data analysis procedure has been carried out in both the Matlab and Python environments. Data pre-processing has been performed in Pandas and Numpy, feature selection and model training in Sklearn, graphics post-processing in Matplotlib and Matlab. Feature engineering and feature selection have been employed to obtain the key-features of each component from a given dataset.

Politecnico di Torino

Post-Doctoral Researcher and Simulation Engineer

Torino, Italy - May 2015 - December 2017

I have developed a simulation environment for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) in Matlab. The environment consists of several physical models for vehicle simulation, of algorithms for the off-line vehicle control optimization and for efficient on-board real-time vehicle control strategies and of several optimization procedures (both deterministic and stochastic) that identify the best vehicle design in different scenarios (market conditions, vehicle penetration, primary energy costs). The software can simulate vehicle performance (such as fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and total costs of ownership) for several vehicle classes (from passenger cars to heavy duty vehicles), power-train types (conventional, hybrid, plug-in and electric vehicles), over different driving conditions and in different market scenarios. A dedicated post-processing tool provides a set of graphics that give insight to the huge dataset of simulations (up to ten of thousands). I have embedded low-throughput diesel engine models into the vehicle control unit. I have led the vehicle CO_2 emission simulations within the European project FABRIC. The project aimed at estimating environmental impacts, risks and benefits of the entire proposed solution for dynamic road charging. A comparison with the current reference cases of slow and fast charging FEVs and range extended/plug in hybrids has been also carried out.

AVL List

PhD candidate intern

Graz, Austria - Apr 2013 - October 2013

I have been responsible for simulation engineering to develop energy management strategies in hybrid electric vehicles. This activity has focused on the enhancement of control strategy development by exploiting infrastructure-to-car data. I was involved in the OpEneR project. The aim of OpEneR was to develop energy management strategies to extend the all-electric-range and improve safety as well as the driving comfort of electric vehicles that are embedded in an intelligent transportation system. I have developed the vehicle model in AVL-Cruise, the algorithm for vehicle velocity prediction with CarMaker and Matlab, the vehicle control in Simulink and the optimal energy management in Matlab. I have supported the DSS System Simulation team with Matlab code development for hybrid vehicle components.
