Cover Story

Exhaust Gas Aftertratment

Solutions for Lowest NOx and CO2 Emissions on Heavy Duty Engines

Authors of the article: AVL

The upcoming tightening of NOx emission legislation in the USA requires a significant reduction in local pollutant emissions. This enforces the highest NOx conversion rates under all operating conditions. AVL has developed an engine and exhaust aftertreatment concept that meets the requirements for achieving “Ultra-low” NOx emissions under laboratory conditions on the engine test bed while maintaining low fuel consumption.

Cover Story

Concept studies for electric heated catalysts

Authors of the article: Benteler

The legislation on pollutant emission limits is getting stricter. Here, the electrically heated catalyst can make a contribution. It ensures that the catalytic converter reaches its light-off temperature more quickly and it helps to ensure that the temperature doesn’t fall below critical limits during engine stop phases or electric driving. Various design solutions that provide auxiliary electrical heating are available. For this reason, Benteler and Silver Atena carried out a concept study taking general technical requirements and component costs as well as additional criteria into account.

Online Modelling of ECU Functions using Pattern Recognition

Authors of the article: APL

Systems of control unit functions are becoming more and more complex and the need for optimization is increasing accordingly. At the same time, pattern recognition methods are making it possible to model complex systems more and more efficiently. APL has developed a methodology that uses decision tree algorithms to optimize ECU functions.


Mixture Formation

Potential Benefits of Water Injection for Downsizing Gasoline Engines

Authors of the article: Daimler

Due to the stricter regulations of the European Union on CO2 emissions from passenger cars, further improvements in the operating efficiency of gasoline engines are necessary. Increasing the compression ratio offers potential here, but requires a combustion behavior that is as knock-resistant as possible, particularly in the case of highly stressed downsizing concepts. In this context, combining the Miller cycle with water injection proves an interesting approach, which Daimler and the University of Siegen have evaluated experimentally in research projects.

Life Cycle Assessment and the Net Zero Challenge

Authors of the article:Ricardo

Using a life cycle assessment approach, Ricardo, together with its partners ifeu, E4tech and ZHAW, has carried out a holistic study of the environmental impact of road vehicles. The study took into account the manufacturing, use and end-of-life phases of the vehicles as well as the energy sources used. On this basis, technological developments and the impact of the various environmental policies were assessed.

Closing Statement

Read by over 50.000 managers across 50 countries

MTZworldwide is the English digital edition of MTZ, which has been published for over 80 years. Always at the pulse of drive development, its appearance has changed dramatically in recent years. Today it is the international technical-scientific magazine for engineers in drive development with a special focus on the development of electrified and combustion engine drives with a pronounced focus on the electrification of 48-volt to high-voltage and fuel cell applications.

The spectrum ranges from innovative passenger car and commercial vehicle drives to components and large engines. Of course, classic topics such as friction minimization, turbocharging or charge cycle and the valvetrain still have a firm place in MTZworldwide. It is therefore a must read for technology-oriented management and promotes the global transfer of information between manufacturers, the supplier industry, service companies and research and development centers all over the world.
