Modeling, Simulation and Control of Long and Short Route EGR in SI Engines
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Modern engines are faced with increasingly stringent requirements for reduced fuel consumptionand lower emissions. A technique which can partly be used to reduce emissionsof nitrogen oxides is recirculation of combusted gases (Exhaust Gas Recirculation, EGR). Ingasoline engines, it also has the advantage that it can save fuel by reducing pumping losses.To large mixture of EGR in the air to the cylinders will however affect the combustion stabilitynegatively. To investigate EGR rate and dynamics with respect to different actuatorinputs, the thesis develops an engine model that includes EGR. The model focus on the airflow in the engine and extends an existing mean value engine model. Two types of EGRsystemare investigated. They are short-route EGR which is implemented between intakemanifold and exhaust manifold and long-route EGR which is implemented between compressorand turbine. The work provides a simulation study that compares both stationaryand transient properties of the two EGR-systems, such as fuel consumption, maximum EGR,and rise time with respect to different actuators.
