Fast but reliable combustion results as basis for engine development, calibration and optimization decisions
These days, legislation acts as a major driving force on the automotive market and brings about current development needs and trends.
Effective drive systems with the lowest emissions possible at moderate costs will be in high demand for all engines sizes. At the same time, the market is changing rapidly as a result of new manufacturers of engines/models appearing on the market and intensifying the competitive pressure on all OEMs.
All these circumstances lead to a trend of radically shortened development cycles in general. The combustion analysis will increasingly become a central test focus again, because future engines will have to incorporate several combustion concepts in parallel. Therefore, all test engineers, calibration engineers and development engineers as well as test-field managers are facing increasing complexity.
Engineers are facing new challenges again as they need stronger interaction and correlation between combustion analysis results in engine automation and control systems faster than ever before.
"Due to the combined use of indicating and visual methods I now understand the processes inside the combustion chamber." (customer statement)
ALL APPLICATION FIELDS
For basic engine calibration, optimizing fuel consumption or emission, combustion noise and mechanical diagnostics, optimizing engine performance or developing new combustion methods: AVL combustion analysis equipment is used worldwide, whenever detailed information about the combustion process is needed.
IN-HOUSE POWERTRAIN ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE
