COURSE PURPOSE

PEMS on CarThis course will prepare attendees for properly using and understanding the latest regulatory approved AVL PEMS equipment, designing and conducting successful field tests for a light duty vehicle fleet, and correctly interpreting emissions and operation data from on-road vehicles for the purpose of certification, research and development, and improving emissions inventories. The lessons learned on the light duty fleet are largely applicable to other sources, such as heavy duty trucks, off-road equipment and vehicles and engines, and marine vessels.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is recommended for engineers, managers and academics who would like to understand how to use PEMS for compliance, research or emissions inventory purposes. OEMS and regulatory agencies recommend that prospective employees for their emissions laboratories take this course.

COURSE OVERVIEW

PEMS on TruckDays one through three focus on emissions measurement fundamentals, learning the capabilities of the PEMS equipment, theory of calculations and corrections,  as well as a brief review of worldwide emissions standards that largely guide the use of PEMS for compliance testing.  Days four and five are dedicated to the design and preparation of a field study, including troubleshooting common problems and data management techniques used in field testing.  Days five through ten are dedicated to a field testing campaign in small student groups, and working with the data to correctly understand the aggregation, calculation, and interpretation of the collected data set and its potential implications.
