Automotive Research Centre


The Hybrid & Powertrain Engineering Research Centre (HyPER-C) was started in 2006. It provides state-of-the-art experimental and simulation facilities in a laboratory with two computer controlled regenerative dynamometers, one of which is unique (in the UK) being for large engines up to 500kW. Other equipment includes hardware-in-loop with powertrain modelling, an axle mounted Chassis Dynamometer,

brake and friction test rigs, mechanical power transmission (belts) test rigs, and in-vehicle instrumentation and datalogging equipment with GPS for on-road vehicle and driver evaluation. This advanced research facility is supported by funding from industrial partners and the UK's Technology Strategy Board to support fundamental and applied research. The Centre's commitment to technology transfer is further demonstrated by four MSc courses that deliver professional postgraduate training in the latest technologies, and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) short courses, including the annual international course on the Braking of Road Vehicles to meet the professional needs of the Automotive industry.
