Since most of the topics of the course concern the recent and upcoming development of the technologies for emission controls and alternative propulsion systems, there are no textbooks encompassing all the course topics. Lesson slides will be distributed through the Polito Website or through paper copies available at the Campus printing office.

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale obbligatoria;
Exam: Written test; Compulsory oral exam;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Written test; Compulsory oral exam;
The final exam is made of two parts: the first concerning emissions control, the second the electric and hybrid propulsion systems. The final mark is the average (on a 50%-50% basis) of the two part results. First part: Engine Emissions Control • based on a written and an oral examination, which take place on the same day • written examination: 5 open questions Duration: 2 hours - No open books • Oral examination is always mandatory, and takes place immediately after the written examination. Discussion of the answers given during the written examination. Discussion of the course reports Second part: Electric and hybrid propulsion systems The second part assessment is based on a written and an oral examination: Written examination: • 48 true-false sentences split in 12 thematic groups. Each group fully correct 1 point (10 points max) • one hybrid-electric powertrain sizing exercise (10 points max) • one open question to be selected between two possible options on transversal issues (max 10 points) Duration: between 3 hours and 3 hours and half depending on the case No open books Oral examination: • if the written part mark is at least 18: voluntary oral • if it is between 15 and 17: mandatory oral • if it is lower than 15: the exam is not passed Oral examination based on up to 3-4 questions focused on the weakest parts of the written examination to confirm or modify the written part mark Duration: up to 30-40 minutes No open books
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
