Optimisation of EGR systems for diesel vehicle applications (Ford)
Master's / University of Bath
Used a Ricardo WAVE model to examine the potential benefits of EGR systems in diesel passenger vehicles. Developed control strategies for low pressure, high pressure and hybrid EGR system models and tested them by running simulations of the ECE-15 drive cycle. Compared steady-state and transient performances of the EGR systems in terms of their NOx, CO and soot emissions, brake power and fuel consumption.
