In this free webinar, Ricardo’s Simon Edwards and Andy Lane will discuss the PaREGEn project, in which Ricardo has worked on lean-burn combustion – a formidable means for reducing the CO2 emissions of new passenger car gasoline engines – but which demands the use of sophisticated emissions control.
The range of technologies is a good basis for the future development and viability of the ICE in a heavily electrified powertrain for such vehicles.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Overview of the PaREGEn demonstrator vehicle technologies which are available now for imminent market introduction
- High brake thermal efficiency leading to low fuel consumption (15% CO2 reduction)
- Next generation aftertreatment for lean gasoline emissions control with 48V EHC and particulate number >10 nm
- Advanced air handling and high energy ignition system to support LP EGR and lean combustion up to λ = 1.55
