The Engine Dynamics Library is used for combustion engine systems modeling, simulation and analysis, including engine to intake/exhaust flow paths, intercoolers, turbochargers, and EGR-loops. Pressure and thermal dynamics of the complete air and exhaust gas exchange are explicitly modeled. Several turbocharger and EGR configurations can be modeled, including variable geometry turbine designs. The library is well suited for creating models used in transient engine response and related engine control.
Typical applications for Engine Dynamics Library include control design, analysis of transient engine performance, and transient emissions studies. The library has been successfully deployed in industry for developing models and controls a complete engine system, including diesel after-treatment systems.
Multi domain: Fluid mechanics, thermal dynamics, and mechanics captured in the same tool.
Air gas exchange dynamics
Well-suited for control design
Easy-to-use templates of complete engine systems which can be extended and adapted for custom needs
The Engine Dynamics Library have been successfully deployed in industry to develop multi-variable control of a complete unit consisting of both the engine and after-treatment system.
Models developed in the Engine Dynamics Library can be exported easily using the FMI technology for Simulink and/or Hardware In the Loop (HIL) applications.
Software in the loop (SIL) or Model in the loop infrastructure for engine systems
HIL verification of ECUs
Modeling of exhaust-gas temperatures for investigating transient catalyst/after treatment boundary conditions
System-wide interdisciplinary modeling and energy management ideal for hybrid vehicles.
