- Reduce costs and maximize efficiency in MD and HD engines by Satyum Joshi, Senior Engineer of Commercial Engines, FEV
In order to reduce fuel consumption, engine manufacturers are using advanced boosting systems, electrification and waste recovery technologies to downsize and downspeed engines.
FEV recently developed a new technology – the ITES system. This system integrates turbo-compounding, electrification and supercharging into one auxiliary component of a medium- or heavy-duty engine. The unit integrates a turbo-compound turbine, a centrifugal compressor and an electric motor-generator over a planetary gear set, and is mechanically connected to the engine crankshaft via a clutch.
This approach reduces cost and required space, and provides an increase in engine efficiency when compared to the independent integration of each of these technologies. FEV predicts up to 15% fuel economy improvement for a medium-duty truck on an FTP certification cycle with a downsized engine and the ITES system.
In this 60-minute webinar, Satyum Joshi, Senior Engineer of Commercial Engines at FEV, discusses the technical aspects of the ITES system and importance of developing fuel efficient components.
