Abstract: This volume gathers together papers by leading authorities on internal combustion engines, completing the work begun in the first volume by R.S. Benson. These state-of-the-art essays examine various methods of evaluating the performance of engines, including considerations of scavenging, in-cylinder flows, turbocharger matching, heat transfer, and a section on the modelling of pressure exchangers. This is the most comprehensive analytical text available on the subject, containing detailed analyses of internal combustion engines previously found only in technical papers.

Abstract: This article is intended to give control engineers an overview of models and controls of diesel engines. The main emphasis is on the engine's torque generation, including all necessary ancillary devices (turbocharger, injection-system, etc.), pollutant emission and model-based controls. The paper gives a brief introduction of the basic working principles and the salient features of diesel engines and their main differences to Otto (gasoline or spark-ignited) engines are shown. The most important control tasks are then identified and their implications on engine performance are analyzed. An overview of the current state-of-the-art in industrial diesel control applications is given. It also discusses models for the simulation of transient macroscopic effects, and how these models can be simplified to be useful for controller synthesis. Finally. an outlook on possible future control issues and their role in diesel engine evolution is presented.

Abstract: An exhaust gas turbocharger for an internal combustion engine has an exhaust gas turbine in the exhaust gas train and a compressor in the intake tract, whereby an adjustable throttle device is provided upstream from the compressor wheel, for regulating the air mass stream to be supplied. The throttle device comprises a first guide grid and a second guide grid in the inflow region to the compressor wheel. Each guide grid possesses an adjustable grid geometry.

Abstract: This paper surveys the publications available in the literature concerning the application of the second-law of thermodynamics to internal combustion engines. The availability (exergy) balance equations of the engine cylinder and subsystems are reviewed in detail providing also relations concerning the definition of state properties, chemical availability, flow and fuel availability, and dead state. Special attention is given to identification and quantification of second-law efficiencies and the irreversibilities of various processes and subsystems. The latter being particularly important since they are not identified in traditional first-law analysis. In identifying these processes and subsystems, the main differences between second- and first-law analyses are also highlighted. A detailed reference is made to the findings of various researchers in the field over the last 40 years concerning all types of internal combustion engines, i.e. spark ignition, compression ignition (direct or indirect injection), turbocharged or naturally aspirated, during steady-state and transient operation. All of the subsystems (compressor, aftercooler, inlet manifold, cylinder, exhaust manifold, turbine), are also covered. Explicit comparative diagrams, as well as tabulation of typical energy and exergy balances, are presented. The survey extends to the various parametric studies conducted, including among other aspects the very interesting cases of low heat rejection engines, the use of alternative fuels and transient operation. Thus, the main differences between the results of second- and first-law analyses are highlighted and discussed.
