Novi, MI (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
Tata Technologies, a leading global provider of engineering services and manufacturing enterprise IT, announced that two of the company’s engineering professionals, Gopal Athani and Roshan Mahadule, will present technical papers at the SAE 2013 World Congress in Detroit April 16-18.
Gopal Athani, is presenting his paper titled “Intelligent Alternator Control Mechanism for Energy Recuperation and Fuel Efficiency Improvement,” based on his work for Tata Motors Ltd., in India. Athani’s abstract reads, in part:
“… The most significant sources for recuperation are the kinetic energy of the moving vehicle or running engine and, to a lesser extent, the thermal energy from mediums such as exhaust gas. This paper describes and analyzes a method to recuperate electrical energy from a portion of the vehicle kinetic energy through an intelligent alternator control mechanism. …”
Athani has more than eight years of experience in automotive and related manufacturing. He joined Tata Technologies in 2009 and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Automotive Engineering.
Roshan Mahadule is presenting his paper titled “CAE Simulation of Door Sag/Set Using Subsystem Level Approach,” based on his work for Chrysler, at the Tata Technologies Center for Advanced Engineering and Design in Pune, India. Mahadule’s abstract reads, in part:
“… This paper provides an overview of the conventional approach for door sag/set study based on door-hinge-BIW assembly (system level approach) and a new approach, based on a subassembly (subsystem level approach). … this new approach of door sag/set, at the subsystem level, evaluates the structural stiffness contribution of individual subsystems for door assembly performance.”
Mahadule has more than 11 years of industrial and manufacturing experience in the CAE domain. He joined Tata Technologies in 2008 and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering and Master’s Degree in Design Engineering.
These technical papers are the latest in a series of automotive engineering innovations presented by Tata Technologies at the annual SAE World Congress. In 2011, the company launched its Vehicle Programs Development (VPD) Group, with more than 300 engineers operating from its four automotive engineering centers of excellence worldwide – Pune (India), Detroit (USA), Coventry (UK), and Stuttgart (Germany).
In 2012, the Tata Technologies eMO EV study was displayed at the SAE World Congress, after its debut at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. The eMO architecture emphasizes “right size” personal urban transportation by minimizing its exterior footprint and maximizing interior space; including seating for four adults. With sustainability in mind, eMO benefits from a low carbon footprint and a recyclability strategy. To reduce the overall carbon footprint of the manufacturing, assembly and other associated processes, Tata Technologies eliminated the traditional body shop and paint process, and utilizes many green product materials in eMO.
In March, 2013, Tata Technologies announced the eMO-C, an all-new variant of eMO, aimed at a specific white space in the commercial market. To learn more about eMO and eMO-C, and Tata Technologies’ vehicle engineering and design capabilities, click here.
