Development of Variable Valve Timing System Controlled by Electric Motor

To meet the requirements for lower fuel consumption and emissions as well as higher performances, a “Variable Valve Timing - intelligent by Electric motor (VVT-iE)” system has been newly developed. The system has been firstly adopted to the intake valve train of the Toyota's new 4.6 and 5.0 litter V8 SI engine series. The VVT-iE is composed of a cam phasing mechanism connected to the intake camshaft and brushless motor integrated with its intelligent driver. The motor-actuated system is completely free from operating limitation caused from hydraulic conditions. This enjoys an advantage for reducing cold HC. The system also presents further reduction in fuel consumption.
