Development and Validation of a 1D Model of a Turbocharged V6 Diesel Engine Operating Under Steady-State and Transient Conditions 2005-01-3857
A one-dimensional engine model was developed for a 4.9-liter V-configuration 6-cylinder turbocharged direction-injection diesel engine. The engine model was first calibrated using the experimental data taken on dynamometer at eight steady-state engine operating conditions. Then the model was extensively validated with four transient dynamometer tests that were conducted mainly with step changes in the engine load, the EGR valve position, the intake throttle position, and/or the VGT vane position.
It is shown that the developed model predicts the engine performance and gas dynamics with an error less than 3% in general, both at steady-state and transient engine operating conditions. The validated engine model is very useful in several future applications, such as engine development and optimization, and engine and aftertreatment system integration.
