Abstract

In this work, a promising technique, consisting in an introduction of the external low pressure cooled EGR system, is analyzed by means of a 1D numerical approach with reference to a downsized spark-ignition turbocharged engine. The effects of various EGR amounts are investigated in terms of fuel consumption at full load operations. The proposed results highlight that EGR allows for increasing the knock safety margin. Fuel economy improvements however depend on the overall engine recalibration, consisting in proper settings of the A/F ratio and spark advance, compatible with knock occurrence. The numerical recalibration also accounts for additional limitations on the turbocharger speed, boost level, and turbine inlet temperature. The maximum BSFC improvement by the proposed solution is 5.9%.
