Calibration Insights – A look at systems & controls from inside the ECM

Scott Brown (4 hours)

This session will talk about strategies manufacturers use to achieve objectives, such as catalyst warm-up, engine noise management, torque management, NVH, power enrichment, etc. We will focus primarily on taking an inside look at the actual calibration tables and functions which will provide additional perspective for anyone involved with engine performance and driveability analysis on today’s vehicles.
