Lean burn engines (diesel and GDI) boast higher fuel economy and cleaner emissions than conventionally tuned engines while producing equivalent power. They employ higher combustion chamber compression ratios, significant air intake swirl and precise lean-metered direct fuel injection. The downfall of lean-burn technology, however, is increased exhaust NOx emissions (due to higher heat and cylinder pressure) and a somewhat narrower RPM power-band (due to slower burn rates of lean mixtures). Removal of NOx from exhausts is a critical need for emission standards and ambient ozone requirements.

All gasoline powered vehicles and equipment create exhaust and evaporative and refueling emissions. Unlike exhaust emissions, which occur only when the engine is operating, evaporative emissions (evap emissions) occur all the time. Controlling evap emissions to PZEV levels is as challenging as controlling exhaust emissions. It becomes even more important in the case of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and extended range electric vehicles (EREV) which generate evaporative fuel vapors, but have no place to burn/consume the vapors when the engine does not operate for extended periods of time.

Turbocharging is already a key part of heavy duty diesel engine technology. However, the need to meet emissions regulations is rapidly driving the use of turbo diesel and turbo gasoline engines for passenger vehicles. Turbocharged diesel engines improve the fuel economy of baseline gasoline engine powered passenger vehicles by 30-50%. Turbocharging is critical for diesel engine performance and for emissions control through a well designed exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. In gasoline engines, turbocharging enables downsizing which improves fuel economy by 5-20%.

High Efficiency Combustion Systems With the increased demands for fuel efficiency and fuel economy, the internal combustion engine (ICE) continues to be examined for design enhancements to improve these measures. Overall, the program will examine several technological advances required to maximize efficiency, including: o Advanced, low-temperature combustion techniques o Improved understanding and modeling of heat loss mechanisms o Electrification and intelligent control of accessory loads o Possible redesign of mechanical systems (e.g., variable stroke for fully expanded cycles) o High-efficiency turbo-machinery to extract exhaust energy and provide boost Emissions Reduction With a greater than 10 percent growth expected in the domestic passenger vehicle market, China now has the world’s largest auto market; and emissions from transportation are growing rapidly as well.

The internal combustion engine has great potential for high fuel efficiency. The ideal otto and diesel cycles can easily achieve more than 70% thermodynamic efficiency. The problems come when those cycles should be implemented in a real engine. Extreme peak pressure during the cycle will call for a very robust engine structure that in turn will increase friction and hence reduce mechanical efficiency. A very high compression ratio also increase the surface to volume ratio and promote heat losses, taking away much of the benefits from the theoretical cycle. The presentation will start with a standard SI engine and it’s efficiency as a function of load. Then a high compression ratio SI with be introduced and compared with the same engine operated in HCCI mode. The four efficiencies of SI as well as HCCI will be discussed and variations like HCCI with negative valve overlap and higher mean piston speed will be shown. A next step is the results with Partially Premixed Combustion.

From their origins in meeting emissions and fuel economy standards, embedded control systems are now proliferating across other areas such as improved safety, comfort and convenience, connectivity, and much more. To address the consequent increase in system and software complexity, automotive industry is using Model-Based Design to design, analyze and implement the software in product development. Now, we are ushering in a new era of transformation where automotive and consumer technologies are merging and the availability of low-cost sensing, computing, and control technologies is allowing the automotive industry to create new products and lines of business. This presentation will start off with current trends in Model-Based Design application for product development, then discuss how sensing, computing, and control are impacting the automotive industry, and how model-based methods can enable you to realize the new opportunities generated by this transformation.

Demand for fuel efficiency and fuel economy constantly increases world-wide. Internal combustion engines and fuels represent an integrated system, continuously examined for enhancements to improve these measures. Fuel ethers are blending components used precisely to enhance performance and provide cleaner, more sustainable gasoline. As clean replacements for toxic compounds, and enablers of improved air quality through a reduction of vehicle emissions of exhaust pollutants like VOCs and PM, fuel ethers enable a global path towards more sustainable, clean, efficient, and affordable mobility. . Thanks to their naturally high octane numbers they also contribute to economies of fuel, enhancing efficient combustion of petrol, while not causing engine damage or corrosion of parts and enabling the transition to higher compression ratio, more efficient engines.

On-board diagnosis of engine and transmission systems has been mandated by government regulation for light and medium vehicles since the 1996 model year. The regulations specify many of the detailed features that on-board diagnostics must exhibit. In addition, the penalties for not meeting the requirements or providing in-field remedies can be very expensive. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of how and why OBD systems function and the technical features that a diagnostic should have in order to ensure compliant and successful implementation.

Stringent requirements of reduced NOx emission limits in the US have presented engineers and technical staff with numerous challenges. Several in-cylinder technical solutions have been developed for diesel engines to meet 2010 emission standards. These technologies have been optimized and have yielded impressive engine-out results in their ability to reduce emissions to extremely low levels. However, current and state-of-the-art in-cylinder solutions have fallen short of achieving the limits imposed on diesel emissions for 2010.
