ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE POWER SYSTEMS. PART 1: MORPHOLOGICAL SYSTEM AND SYSTEMS ANALYSIS
Systems analysis methods permit a rational evaluation of various power plant configurations, particularly regarding compliance with the multitude of present and future objectives. To provide a complete overview of all possible combustion engines, a Morphological System based on combustion methods was developed. The important results of the system analytical investigations are presented. Examples from the subcompact car class show the superiority of gasoline, diesel, and stratified charge engines over such advanced systems as gas turbines and stirling engines for mass production until at least 1990. A comparison of gasoline and diesel engines is made in greater detail.
