The Application of Variable Event Valve Timing to a Modern Diesel Engine 2000-01-1229

DaimlerChrysler and Mechadyne have undertaken a piece of work to investigate the opportunities for improving the operation of light duty diesel engines using variable valve timing. The very high compression ratios used in this type of engine make it essential to be able to alter the valve open periods to affect exhaust valve opening and intake valve closing, whilst leaving the valve motions largely unchanged around overlap top dead centre to avoid valve to piston contact.
This paper presents an overview of the design solution, a description of the simulation model used, performance and economy data predicted by the model and a discussion of other areas of opportunity where improvements may be possible.
