Simulation of a Small Turbocharged Gasoline Engine in Transient Operation 2004-01-0995
The paper describes experience obtained with a GT-Power code used for a downsized turbocharged gasoline engine modeling. The steady-performance model, calibrated by preliminary experiments, has been modified to the transient response one. Knock limit prediction has been used for compression ratio and boost pressure optimization. New authors′ models have been developed for extrapolation of compressor and turbine maps to cover the field of operation modes during a typical transient response. GT-Power control elements ensured a realistic engine response to accelerator, brake or clutch positions. The Driver element could drive various speed schedules such as maximum acceleration mode, engine braking mode or the European fuel-consumption/emission test.
