An activated carbon canister is used to capture hydrocarbon vapor emissions from the fuel tank as part of an evaporative emission control system (EVAP). When the engine is running these stored hydrocarbons can be purged by opening a valve to the intake system and reversing the flow through the carbon canister allowing the engine to…Read more
GT: Realtime Engine Models Now Run 2x Faster!
We are excited to announce that with the release of GT-SUITE V7.5, Build 2, realtime GT-POWER engine models are running twice as fast than in previous versions. Specifically for GT-POWER engine models, recent developments by the engine modeling team at GT have resulted in a tremendous speedup of the core realtime solver, with large reduction…Read more
Injector Models for Predictive Combustion: IAV-GT Partnership, New Example in V7.4
Accurate prediction of diesel combustion, performance, and emissions requires that the injected mass and injection rate shape be known to a high degree of accuracy. Detailed modelling of the injector by OEM's allows greater flexibility than measurement alone. It provides injection data for the entire operating range, allows insight in to the injector operation, and…Read more
