Influence of the Regeneration Strategy on the NVH Optimization with Some Hints for a Novel Approach to Re-size the Braking System is now available from Claudio Beninir, Brembo S.p.A., on the EuroBrake website. He answers a few related questions in this Spotlight.
What do you find most interesting about the topic you are presenting on?
It has been engaging to estimate how regen impacts on different vehicle under several driving conditions, influencing brake NVH / performance / wear evaluations. Such analysis lead us to the development of an interesting and extremely useful simulation tool which aims to optimize brake dimensioning considering the regeneration effect.
How has coronavirus affected your work and has it had a direct impact on the work you are presenting?
Luckily most of the test activities were carried out before Covid-19, so the pandemic did not have a direct impact on this work.
Who do you think will be most interested in seeing your presentation and who would you most like to ask questions about it?
This work shows that Brembo is ready to play an active role in this electrification scenario: we would like to interact with OEMs and discuss with them about EVs direction in terms of mission, regen strategies, validation procedures and hence brake system sizing optimization.
Claudio Benini works as NVH System Engineer at Brembo, role which lead him to be part of several development activities mainly related to brake noise and vibration but also focused on EV brake system.
In 2013 he graduated cum Laude in Mechanical Engineering with Automotive specialization at the University of Brescia. He spent the following 3 years leading research activities inside the University to reach the Ph.D.
In 2017 he started his career at Brembo as NVH Engineer, responsible for costumer brake system NVH development. Currently he is also involved into multiple SAE working groups for brake test standard definition.
