Gasoline Engine Systems for Future European Vehicles
Published January 01, 1986 by Yugoslavia Society of Automotive Engineer in Serbia
The adoption of more stringent emission standards in Europe will lead to the use of new combustion and emission control systems on future engines. The performance of some of the possible combustion systems on a single cylinder engine are compared and their usefulness for different vehicle types examined. A 1.5 litre lean burn engine has been fitted to a medium sized car together with an oxidation catalyst and different mixture strategies compared. The adoption of a sophisticated transient fuelling strategy is shown to improve driveability at lean mixtures. Based on experience with single and multicylinder data, ways of meeting future emissions legislation for each engine size category are discussed.
