After receiving a US Department of Energy grant two years ago, Delphi and partners including Hyundai Technical Centre, Wisconsin Engine Research Consultants and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, set about developing a low temperate combustion system using petrol direct-injection compression ignition. Now, at the 2012 SAE High Efficiency IC Engines Symposium (logo, pictured), Delphi offered an update on the system’s progress. It revealed that the system has been considered for around five years – even before the DOE funding came into place. It makes the most of a high compression ratio and features multiple late injections, an intake boost and moderate EGR assisting it to offer high efficiency and lower NOx emissions. It focused on a number of objectives – including the best strategies for low emissions; and evaluating an engine concept for full-time operation. Testing h...
