Design and Development of High Performance Diesel Engines for Off-Highway and Genset Applications with Emerging Technologies
To meet the latest trends in Internal Combustion engines regarding efficiency, emissions and durability, an integrated approach to engine development is required. This paper describes about a Robust, Reliable and an integrated approach used in design and development of an engine for high power density which can be adopted for both Off-highway application as well as Genset application. The engine is developed to meet US - EPA Tier-III Emission Norms and MoEF (Genset Emission Norms for India formulated by Ministry of Environment and Forest) emission norms respectively. This paper discusses various technologies applied in developing this engine to achieve high power density, low exhaust emissions, and low noise and vibrations. This 4 valve per cylinder engine is created largely within a digital environment using the latest computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided engineering (CAE) techniques and simulation tools.
