Evaluation of Further CO
Reduction Potentials on Conventional Engines and Drive Trains
Future CO2 emission targets and the related fuel consumption targets on passengers cars can only be achieved by implementation of new components on vehicle level (e.g. low weight materials) or further optimization of the whole power train. CO2 reduction potentials are evaluated by using special methods and procedures in the ongoing product development or product improvement process.
On the examples
Friction analysis of complete engine/engine components
Gas exchange simulation
Thermal management optimization
High pressure fuel injection system improvements
Use of optimized drive train components
Complete evaluation of the vehicle power train on chassis dynamometer
Possibilities for the future are shown. All potentials are implemented continuously into our product portfolio which is offered to the OEMs for the implementation into the customer products.
