  1. 1. The Pneumatic Hybrid Vehicle - A New Concept for Fuel Consumption Reduction

    Author : Sasa Trajkovic; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VVA; Regenerative; Air-motor; Compressor; Pneumatic; Hybrid; Vehicle; Electric Hybrid; Drive Cycle; GT-Power; Simulink; FPGA;

    Abstract : Urban traffic involves frequent acceleration and deceleration. During deceleration, the energy previously used to accelerate the vehicle is mainly wasted on heat generated by the friction brakes. If this energy that is wasted in traditional internal combustion engines (ICE) could be saved, the fuel economy would improve. READ MORE

  2. 2. Flow measurements using combustion image velocimetry in diesel engines

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Machine design, Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Henrik Dembinski; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This work shows the in-cylinder airflow, and its effects on combustion and emissions, in a modern, heavy-duty diesel engine. The in-cylinder airflow is examined experimentally in an optical engine and the flow field inside the cylinder is quantified and shown during combustion, crank angle resolved. READ MORE

  3. 3. Waste Heat Recovery in Heavy Duty Diesel Engines

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Jelmer Johannes Rijpkema; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Organic Flash Cycle; Heavy Duty Diesel Engine; Organic Rankine Cycle; Trilateral Flash Cycle; Transcritical Rankine Cycle; Internal Combustion Engines; Waste Heat Recovery;

    Abstract : Over 50% of the energy released by burning fuel in a truck engine is lost as heat rather than being used to propel the vehicle. A promising method for capturing and reusing this heat, and thereby improving engine efficiency, is to exploit thermodynamic cycles for waste heat recovery (WHR). READ MORE

  4. 4. Transient simulations of heavy-duty diesel engines with focus on the turbine

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Niklas Winkler; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The finite response time of the turbocharger is the most notable effect oftransient operation on a turbocharged diesel engine. To fulfil future emission requirements high amounts of transient EGR will be required. READ MORE

  5. 5. CFD of Duct Acoustics for Turbocharger Applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Emma Alenius; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aero acoustics; Large Eddy Simulation; IC-engines; 1D models; turbocharger; orifice plate; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Acoustics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Akustik; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : The search for quieter internal combustion engines drives the quest for a better understanding of the acoustic properties of engine duct components. In this work the main focus is the turbocharger compressor and a discussion of turbocharger acoustics and earlier work within the area is presented, giving an insight into its sound generating mechanisms and the damping effect it has on pressure pulses, i.
