IC-Engine Downsizing and Pressure-Wave Supercharging for Fuel Economy 2000-01-1019

This paper describes work done on spark-ignition engine Downsizing and Super-Charging (DSC). Substantial DSC is shown to have a potential for good fuel-economy in SI-engines especially at part-load without compromising in pollutant emission levels. Built into a 4-passenger light-weight car a fuel economy of 67 M/gal (3.5 l/100km) in the European test cycle MVEG-95 was achieved with the potential to satisfy ULEV or Euro IV emission limits.
