Open-source Software for Engine Model Development and Testing 2004-01-0905

Open-source software is growing in popularity and becoming a real alternative to proprietary software. This is not only happening in home and office applications, but in embedded, industrial and engineering applications as well. This paper shows how open-source software can be used to develop and test engine models, both in simulations and in laboratory tests with real engines. It begins by explaining what open-source software is, its advantages and disadvantages compared to proprietary software, and what relevant software for engine modelling is already available. The paper describes the experience of the Engine Control Group (ECG) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), using a full open-source Linux solution including some software developed by the group itself. Finally, the paper concludes with the pros and cons of using this approach, suggesting tools and features to be developed in the future.
