Innovative Method of Calibration to Meet BS4 Emission with Optimized Fuel Economy and Noise in a MPV with 2.5Lit Common Rail Diesel Engine
In today's fast growing automobile world, the Emission limits are stringent; customer expectations of vehicle performance and Fuel economy are more. Achieving these parameters for the given engine are challenging task for any automobile engineers. BS4 Emission limits are 50% more stringent than BS3 limits and from April 2010 onwards, all passenger cars which will be selling in 13 metro cities in India should be BS4 emission compliant. In this paper, we have described how BS4 limits were achieved in a MPV with 2.49 l, 70kW Common Rail Direct Injection Turbocharged Diesel engine, with push rod. During Emission development, the following processes were followed to meet BS4 emission limits without sacrificing the engine performance, Fuel Economy and Noise. Selecting suitable hardwares like Turbocharger, EGR cooler at engine level to reduce NOx and Unburned Hydrocarbon Emissions with best Brake specific fuel consumption.
