The Heavy-Duty Gasoline Engine - An Alternative to Meet Emissions Standards of Tomorrow 2004-01-0984

A technology path has been identified for development of a high efficiency, durable, gasoline engine, targeted at achieving performance and emissions levels necessary to meet heavy-duty, on-road standards of the foreseeable future. Initial experimental and numerical results for the proposed technology concept are presented. This work summarizes internal research efforts conducted at Southwest Research Institute.
An alternative combustion system has been numerically and experimentally examined. The engine utilizes gasoline as the fuel, with a combination of enabling technologies to provide high efficiency operation at ultra-low emissions levels. The concept is based upon very highly-dilute combustion of gasoline at high compression ratio and boost levels. Results from the experimental program have demonstrated engine-out NOx emissions of 0.06 g/hp/hr, at single-cylinder brake thermal efficiencies (BTE) above thirty-four percent. Multi-cylinder, 3-way catalyst equipped versions of this engine are estimated to provide NOxemissions of approximately 0.003 g/hp/hr at efficiencies approaching thirty-nine percent.
