Delphi Experts Play Key Role in SAE 2010 World Congress

TROY, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Mar 29, 2010 -- Delphi Corp. executives, engineers and technical experts will play a key role in the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 2010 World Congress being held April 13 -15 in Detroit. From active engagement on industry-issue panels to 31 technical presentations, Delphi representatives will participate in discussions on key topics including fuel efficiency, safety, electronics and emissions reduction.

"The SAE 2010 World Congress is a great place for our team to not only share their own new ideas but to also learn from colleagues in the automotive industry," said Andrew Brown, Jr., Ph.D., Delphi executive director and chief technologist and SAE International's 2010 president. "We are looking forward to the thoughtful debate and discussion the event brings."

PANELS
Delphi executives will participate in four panels during this year's World Congress including:

"Smart Grid Technology: Are Electric Vehicles Part of the Problem or Part of the Solution?"
Jeff Owens, president, Delphi Electronics and Safety, is part of a panel that will discuss the real potential of smart electrical vehicles and how electrical grid engineers and vehicle manufacturers will implement the smart grid. This panel will be held on Tuesday, April 13 at 10:00 a.m. in the FEV Powertrain Innovation Forum.

"Technology Sharing in the Era of Ecollaboration"
Brown moderates a panel that will discuss various promising technologies under consideration for use in the automotive industry that were generated by outside sectors and the processes used to identify and collaborate on these technologies. This panel will be held on Wednesday, April 14 at 1:30 p.m. in the AVL Technology Leadership Center. Additionally, as SAE president, Brown will also speak at the opening ceremony and participate in various other events during the week.

"Global Designs for Different Markets - Sustainable, Safe Designs"
Beth Schwarting, general director, Electronic Controls, Delphi Electronics and Safety, will participate on a panel discussion that examines various approaches of adapting global designs to different markets and regulations while at the same time maintaining a viable business case for global vehicles. This discussion will be held on Thursday, April 15 at 10:30 a.m. in the AVL Technology Leadership Center

"Chief Purchasing Officers Panel"
Sidney Johnson, Delphi's vice president, global supply management, weighs in on a panel that will discuss the best practices in the procurement community to engage suppliers for effective commercial exchange to excel at innovation. The panel discussion will be held on Thursday, April 15 at noon in the FEV Powertrain Innovation Forum.

TECHNICAL PAPERS
Delphi will be presenting 29 papers during SAE. Several papers are expected to draw high interest from Congress attendees including:

Ignition Systems for Spray-Guided Stratified Combustion - (2010-01-0598)
Ignition technology, as well as the injection strategy, has a significant impact on the success of gasoline direct injection (GDi) stratified combustion engines. The probability of a wide variation of the fuel air mixture and high charge motion near the spark location require a greatly improved ignition system with higher energy and breakdown voltage capabilities. Delphi's study demonstrates the potential for multi-charge ignition and alternating current ignition technologies to successfully support stratified GDi engine programs. This paper will be presented on Tuesday, April 13, at 10:00 a.m. in room W2-65.

In-vehicle Networking Technology for 2010 and Beyond - (2010-01-0687)
This paper discusses the current usage and future strategy of in-vehicle multiplexing technologies such as Flexray, MOST, Firewire, and wireless. In-vehicle networking, or "Multiplexing," impacts almost every product Delphi produces and involves circuitry and software. Comparisons between the variety of methods are useful because there can be large performance and cost differences among the various data communication schemes. This paper will be presented on Wednesday, April 14, at 1:20 p.m. in room D0-03D.

Emission Reduction with Heated Injectors - (2010-01-1265)
Multi-port fuel injectors capable of rapidly heating ethanol for cold starts and engine operation below the fuel's flash point temperature have been developed for Brazil, where ethanol is a staple fuel due to local factors. Previous Delphi studies showed that these "heated tip" injectors can reduce emissions from E100. This new Delphi study demonstrates that with further development of the technology, heated tip multi-port fuel injectors can also reduce emissions with other automotive fuels. This paper will be presented on Thursday, April 15, at 1:20 p.m., in room W2-67.
