The Challenge

The Challenge

The increasing market demand for gas engines due to newly explored gas resources and the increasingly stricter emission regulations raise the following questions:

  • Which high-performance solutions meet upcoming Greenhouse Gas & CO2 regulations?
  • How can my gas engine achieve a comparable performance to Diesel engines?
  • What makes high-powered gas engines reliable and durable?
  • Is there a solution with an ROI within a few years?

The AVL Solution

AVL’s solutions with regard to gas engines development range from the initial concept definition, engine design & analysis, software & functions development to engine development & validation.

  • Spark-ignited stoichiometric combustion concept combined with small amounts of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and three-way-catalyst (TWC) systems. Short-term solution for the next generation of truck and bus applications meeting the most stringent EU VI and US EPA14 emission regulations
  • Lean burn spark ignited gas engine concept with relatively low modification effort of existing Diesel engine for gas fuel. A highly efficient commercial gas engine solution for less strictly regulated markets as well as for industrial applications
  • Dual fuel engine concepts with port fuel injection interesting gas engine alternatives especially for markets with less stringent emissions requirements
  • Gas high-pressure direct injection (HPDI) technology offers highest power density, diesel-like fuel efficiency and high Diesel substitution rates of up to 90%

The Added Value

AVL customers benefit from commercial gas engines with

  • Highest possible power output
  • Best fuel efficiency due to optimized combustion systems and advanced air handling concepts
  • Tailored, cost-effective aftertreatment system
  • Flexibility and independency due to individual gas engine control software
  • Minimized validation cost due to AVL experience coupled with optimized validation plan design
