Performance Analysis and Valve Event Optimization for SI Engines Using Fractal Combustion Model 2006-01-3238

On the basis of the newly-developed fractal combustion model, the engine-thermodynamic-cycle simulations were conducted with the 1D engine-cycle-simulation program AVL-BOOST for a passenger-car SI engine with a fully-variable valve train. Results of the simulations showed a good agreement with measurements for both full and part load at various engine speeds. On the basis of the thermodynamic model for the engine, the valve event optimization was carried out for both full and part load with a partial factorial DoE plan consisting of various valve event durations and timings. For each of the selected cases, an independent optimization for the ignition timing was performed to determine the minimum BSFC under a constraint on specified knock criteria. Satisfactory results for the valve event optimization were achieved. The results of the engine performance and the valve event optimization demonstrate that the fractal combustion model is an accurate predictive model and suitable for 1D engine-thermodynamic cycle simulations.
