Chip Simulation of Automotive ECUs on PC
Modern ECUs contain tens of thousands of engine parameters that need to be tuned. Calibration of these parameters is time consuming and complex. Simulation and optimization on a PC could help to automate and speed up the calibration process, in particular if simulation runs much faster (e.g. 20 times) than real-time. QTronic and Daimler describe how the ECU Simulation is integrated in an engine development process by the OEM.

Simplified High Performance Injection Systems for Dual-fuel Engines
With their fuel flexibility and low emissions in the gaseous fuel mode, dual-fuel engines are increasingly popular. Currently, they require two fuel injection circuits, one for pilot injection in...
Characterisation of Large Gas and Dual-fuel Engines
Engines burning gas or combinations of gas and liquid fuels have become popular in recent years, but due to lack of an established nomenclature designations have become somewhat confusing. In order...
Bearing Technology Combinations for Low Friction Cranktrains
The focus of emissions legislation has now expanded to include carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases with challenging targets set for the total efficiency of complete engine-powered systems....
