PHOENICE Engine steady-state warm calibration

Steady-state warm calibration of the PHOENICE prototype engine was carried out at relevant engine load points on IFP Energies nouvelles‘s engine test bench. A specific sequential methodology of optimization has been set to achieve the lowest fuel consumption while minimizing the pollutant emissions. This calibration has been performed on ~40 operating points: operating points defined as …

PHOENICE developed a new Euro7-ready exhaust aftertreatment system (EATS) including a diesel-like SCR and an EHC optimized for engine lean operation

The PHOENICE EATS comprises two sections: a close-coupled section, primarily designed to control gaseous emissions under cold-start and stoichiometric (λ=1) conditions, as well as particulate matter, and an underfloor section, which is necessary for NOx conversion under lean conditions and to reduce the concentration of additional pollutants such as ammonia. The results of exhaust after-treatment …

The PHOENICE consortium developed a fully physical virtual test rig to support the calibration of its engine !

The PHOENICE project developed a fully physical virtual test rig to support the calibration of the highly efficient spark ignition engine of the project. Indeed, the availability of a reliable simulation platform is essential to effectively exploit the combination of the several features introduced to achieve the project target of 47% peak gross indicated efficiency, …

The first engine prototype has been assembled and installed at the IFPEN test bench

The first engine prototype has been assembled and installed at the IFPEN test bench! Most of the new features, including the high-pressure injection system, the long-route EGR loop, and the rebuilt airline embedding the new WCAC, have been successfully implemented. On the other hand, the baseline turbocharger and exhaust aftertreatment system were used for the …

Garrett is proud to bring its state-of-the-art E-Turbo Technology to PHOENICE project

The concept embeds a high-speed electric motor (>200k rpm) into the core of the Turbocharger which is powered and controlled by Garrett’s own inverter. In this configuration, the inverter takes in DC current from the vehicle network and switches it into 3 phase AC to drive the motor. Powerful algorithms switch the phase currents at …

The manufacturing and on-bench characterization of waste heat recovery systems (WHRS) completed by Marelli Europe

The manufacturing and on-bench characterization of waste heat recovery systems (WHRS) completed by Marelli Europe! Two different devices were considered: Exhaust heat recovery system (EHRS) for engine fast warm-up effect: the device consists of a heat exchanger (HE) and a by-pass tube+valve. When by-pass is closed, exhaust gas passes through the HE and transfers part …
