Energiåtervinning: HAM, turbocompounding och rankine

Heat recovery: HAM, turbocompounding and rankine

Meeting already adopted and future legislation and also market expectations regarding fuel consumption is a very difficult challenge for vehicle manufacturers. High efficiency and consequently low operational costs will be increasingly important in the future. More than half of the fuels chemical energy supplied to an internal combustion engine is lost as heat where the largest source is high exhaust enthalpies.Studies have shown that using heat recovery systems can reduce fuel consumption by 20 % for a diesel engine. The project aims at studying different concepts for heat recovery for both a light duty and a heavy duty vehicle. The project will be performed as an integrated effort with participants from all the three competence centres in internal combustion engines.
