Project summary:

Automotive sector expects the implementation of modern engines, which can help to reduce fuel consumption, pollutants emission and noise. During the project, based on experience in designing of barrel engines, a prototype engine will be designed, built and comprehensively tested. Based on the results of research investigations conducted in the project, the involved partners will offer an innovative technical solution: environmentally friendly and highly efficient engine, which may be used as a range-extender for hybrid cars of the future.
The prerequisite to begin the project research are promising results of Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition combustion mode achieved previously in a large (340 kW) multi-cylinder barrel engine. Special features of the engine and special design will allow investigating ultra-clean HCCI combustion. The consortium will include teams from Warsaw University of Technology and Norwegian University of Technology - leading technical universities in Poland and Norway. Complementarity of partners' knowledge and their potential allow offering a modern solution for the global automotive industry.
