Meeting the requirements of heavy-duty engine emissions regulations is a challenge for all engine manufacturers. Since the introduction of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in medium and heavy-duty diesel engines, these systems have become more sophisticated and tightly integrated with emission control systems. This 2-day seminar will explore the advantages and disadvantages of EGR and the most effective implementation of various EGR systems. This seminar will begin by defining EGR and why it is used in diesel engines, along with an explanation of the mechanisms by which EGR is able to reduce NOx.

The definition of vehicle and powertrain level targets is one of the first tasks toward establishing where a vehicle will reside with respect to the current or future state of industry. Target setting at the vehicle level is relatively straightforward. Realization of these targets relies on a combination of competitive powertrain (source) and vehicle (path) NVH performance. Assessment of vehicle NVH performance (sensitivity) is well understood, and can be accomplished through determination of customer interface response to measured excitations at the source input locations. However, definition of powertrain source targets can be more difficult, particularly if powertrain level data (as acquired in a hemi-anechoic powertrain test cell) is not available. In addition to powertrain source noise and vibration levels, methods have been developed for quantification of powertrain radiated sound quality issues which can propagate to the vehicle.

As part of the long-term business strategy Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has designed and developed a new family of advanced, highly efficient engines for future models. The all-new Ingenium family of inline 4 cylinder engines will increase JLR's capability to offer high performance engines with class-leading levels of refinement, whilst ensuring continued significant reductions in vehicle emissions. This paper details the NVH development of the lead engine, a 2.0 litre common rail turbo diesel. The task from the outset of this new programme was to reduce the mass of the engine by 21.5kg, whilst also improving the structural attenuation by 5 dB in comparison to the outgoing engine. Improving the structural attenuation by 5 dB was not only a key enabler in reducing combustion noise, but also helped to achieve a certified CO2 performance of 99 g/km in the all-new Jaguar XE model, by allowing more scope for increasing cylinder pressure forcing without compromising NVH.

In comparison to medium duty and heavy duty diesel engines, NVH development of light duty diesel engines requires significant collaboration with the OEM. Typically, competitive benchmark studies and customer expectations define the NVH targets at the vehicle and subsequently cascaded down at the powertrain level. For engine manufacturing companies like Cummins, it is imperative to work closely with OEM to deliver on the NVH expectations. In certain situations, engine level NVH targets needs to be demonstrated in the OEM or 3rd party acoustic test facility for contract approvals. However, this is a difficult task to accomplish, considering the differences between acoustic test facilities and hardware, instrumentation, etc. In addition, engine itself is a big contributor to the noise variation. This technical paper documents one such case study conducted on a standalone light duty diesel engine in three different acoustic test facilities.

Combustion noise of diesel engine can be deteriorated by combustion characteristics that are influenced by the factors such as engnine NVH durability, driving conditions, environmental factors and fuel properties. Therefore we need to develop robust combustion noise to be insensitive to the factors. To achieve this purpose, the method for combustion characteristics prediction has been developed by means of analyzing vibration signal measured from engine cylinder block. The closed-loop control by controlling injection parameters through combustion characteristics prediction has been carried out to make combustion characteristics that we want to exhibit. We have also evaluated the effect of combustion noise and fuel consumption by applying the closed-loop control.

The diesel engine noise is classified into mechanical noise, flow dynamic noise and combustion noise. Among of them, the combustion noise is higher than the others due to diesel combustion high compression ratio and auto ignition. The injected fuel is mixed with air in ignition delay process, followed by simultaneous ignition of premixed mixture. This process results in rapid pressure rise which is the main source of the combustion noise. The amount of fuel burned during premixed combustion is mainly affected by the ignition delay. The EGR rate has impact on the ignition delay, and thus it influences combustion noise characteristics. Therefore, during the transient state, combustion noise characteristics changes as the EGR rate deviates from the target value. Therefore, in this study, the effect of EGR rate deviation during transient state the combustion noise is studied. The 1.6 L diesel engine with a VGT was used for the experiment.

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.

Recently, ozone addition has come under scrutiny as a means of controlling ignition timing for Low Temperature (LTC) combustion, which defeats the NOx-PM tradeoff using a highly dilute, homogeneous mixture. This is because ozone decomposes into atomic oxygen and hydroxyl radicals that influence the early phases of the ignition delay process. In order to understand ozone’s influence on combustion better, this work analyzes the effects of ozone-assisted combustion for a single-cylinder, direct-injection Compression Ignition engine via a mechanical pump-line-nozzle fuel system and an electronically controlled common-rail fuel injection system. Experimental outcomes indicate a relatively small influence of ozone for the mechanical injection system with a comparably decreased effect for the common rail system.

Abstract In view of the requirements of torque-based engine control and coordinated control for hybrid powertrain systems during mode switching and shifting, engine torque needs to be known. A framework for torque generated model was established, and the influencing factors of engine effective torque were analyzed. Then steady and transient performance tests of DEUTZ 6V1015 diesel engine were designed in order to get sample data to train ENNs. By use of the trained ENNs the estimations of both steady and transient friction torque and indicated thermal efficiency were completed, results were: the estimation error of friction torque and indicated thermal efficiency was less than 5%. Then the complete torque generated model was established by embedding the trained ENNs, and the estimation of effective torque was done, results were: the estimation error was less than 5%.

Abstract Diesel engines provide a solution for the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) from motor vehicles. For diesel engines, however, technology to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions is essential. This report focuses on Urea - Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) as an aftertreatment system for NOx reduction. The NOx conversion performance of SCR catalyst depends on exhaust gas temperature and the NO2/NOX ratio. In order to raise the NO2/NOX ratio, it is essential to raise the temperature of oxidation catalyst. For these purposes, it is necessary to raise the temperature of oxidation catalyst and SCR catalyst to high level in order to enhance NOx conversion. Temperature rising is implemented by in-cylinder fuel injection (post-injection).

Abstract The impact of nano-additives with the diesel and biodiesel fuels is one of the current scopes of research with regards to the fuel modification techniques. Intensive research is underway to utilize the nano-additives judiciously without affecting our ecological environment. In the present work, the effects of nano-additives (Alumina and Carbon Nanotubes) blended biodiesel emulsion fuels on the performance, smoke, gaseous emission and combustion characteristics of a constant speed four stroke single cylinder direct injection diesel engine was investigated. It is recognized that emissions of nanoparticles from diesel engines is of great concern and that if this work demonstrates a performance benefit then further work will be focused on the health impact issues. Esterification and emulsification techniques were adopted to prepare the jatropha biodiesel and jatropha water-biodiesel emulsion fuels respectively. The whole investigation was carried out in five phases.

Abstract An experimental study is carried out to compare the effects of high-pressure-loop, low-pressure-loop and dual-loop exhaust gas recirculation systems (HPL-EGR, LPL-EGR and DL-EGR) on the combustion characteristics, thermal efficiency and emissions of a diesel engine. The tests are conducted on a six-cylinder turbocharged heavy-duty diesel engine under various operating conditions. The low-pressure-loop portion (LPL-Portion) of DL-EGR is swept from 0% to 100% at several constant EGR rates, and the DL-EGR is optimized based on fuel efficiency. The results show that the LPL-EGR can attain the highest gross indicated thermal efficiency (ITEg) in the three EGR systems under all the tested conditions. At a middle load of 0.95 BMEP, 1660 r/min, the pumping losses of LPL-EGR lead to the lowest BTE among the EGR systems. The HPL-EGR can achieve the best brake thermal efficiency (BTE) and emissions within the EGR rate of 22.5% mainly due to the reduced pumping losses.
