Abstract



Mean value modelling of a poppet valve EGR-system


Because of new emission and on board diagnostics legislations, heavy truck manufacturers are facing new challenges when it comes to improving the engines and the control software. Accurate and real time executable engine models are essential in this work. One successful way of lowering the NOx emissions is to use Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). The objective of this thesis is to create a mean value model for Scania's next generation EGR system consisting of a poppet valve and a two stage cooler. The model will be used to extend an existing mean value engine model. Two models of different complexity for the EGR system have been validated with sufficient accuracy. Validation was performed during static test bed conditions. The resulting flow models have mean relative errors of 5.0% and 9.1% respectively. The temperature model suggested has a mean relative error of 0.77%.
