Aftertreatment Modelling for Diesel and Gasoline Engines

In this project you will be calibrating a detailed compression ignition & spark ignition + explicit engine model by observing the effects of engine operating parameters on emissions and the conversion efficiencies of catalysts, such as TWC [Three Way Cat Conn] and DOC-DPF-SCR with urea injector, on different pollutants.

SI / CI Engine + After-treatment modelling

You will do the following in this project : 

  • Choose a Non-predictive explicit engine model with an EATS attached to it. 
  • Tuning the appropriate geometrical catalyst calibration parameters in different subsystems such as TWC for Gasoline & DOC-DPF-SCR for Diesel.
  • Set up two different case setups for applications with/without an external EGR assembly and run it for rated and intermediate speeds and observe the performance vs emission trade-off.
  • Post process the results in GT-POST to analyse the different effect of engine operating variables on emissions.

  • 1-D Model selection
  • Setting up the right combustion and emission models
  • After-treatment calibration using Catalyst modelling techniques
  • Post-processing in GT-POST

Thermodynamic analysis of a tractor engine

In this project, you will be making use of the existing detailed Engine + Aftertreatment models in GT-POWER to understand the chemistry and the reaction mechanisms that goes behind modelling catalysts for a TWC [Three way catalytic converter]. You will also study the effect of light off temperature vs Conversion efficiency of pollutants for Spark ignition engines and the effect of catalyst temperature and Urea injection of a DOC [Diesel Oxidation catalyst] - DPF [ Diesel Particulate filer] - SCR [ Selective Catalytic Reduction] on Soot and NOx emissions.

  • Setting up the 1-D Modelling Interface
  • Calibration of parameters for Gasoline/Diesel AFT technologies
  • Setting up case for applications with and without an EGR assembly for trade off studies
  • Post processing and Inference of simulation results
