Optimization of Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Parameters for Low Exhaust Emissions Using The Design of Experiments 2002-01-1148

For compliance with stringent exhaust emissions regulation, a lot of the world's Heavy Duty Diesel Engines (HDDE) have been recently equipped with electronically controlled components, such as the Fuel Injection Equipment (FIE), Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system, Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VG). Flexibility of engine control has been increasing more and more with electronic control for low exhaust emissions and good performance. However, determination of the optimum combination of engine control parameters is extremely tedious, because an engine has so many parameters to be optimized and their interactions are complicated. Therefore, a Design of Experiments (DOE) method was used to optimize the engine control parameters, which effect emissions and performance, in a shorter time. After using this method, it was recognized that it was an effective method to optimize various engine parameters, and was very convenient for engine development.
