Modeling and Parameterization Study of Fuel Consumption and Emissions for Light Commercial Vehicles
This paper describes the effects of diverse driving modes and vehicle component characteristics impact on fuel efficiency and emissions of light commercial vehicles. The AVL's vehicle and powertrain system level simulation tool (CRUISE) was adopted in this study. The main input data such as the fuel consumption & emission map were based on the experimental value and vehicle components characteristic data (full load characteristic curves, gear shifting position curves, torque conversion curve etc.) and basic specifications (gross weight, gear ratio, tire radius etc.) were used based on the database or suggested value. The test database for two diesel vehicles adopted whether prediction accuracy of simulation data were converged in acceptable range. These data had been acquired from the portable emission measurement system, the exhaust emission and operating conditions (engine speed, vehicle speed, pedal position etc.) were acquired at each time step.
