Whole space combustion for diesel light duty vehicles

Objective

The aim of SPACE LIGHT is the RTD of a new homogenous combustion process (HCCI) for passenger cars diesel engine. The innovative combination of several engine and injection technologies will be investigated and implemented on single-cylinder engine concepts up to final economic and technical assessment of the in-vehicle on the road potential. The main technical objectives are to meet EURO 4 emissions limits without fuel sensitive after treatment for NOx and/or particulates while maintaining low well to wheel CO2 emissions advantage of the best state of the art diesel engines. The main tasks will start from research study of HCCI combustion specifications before to perform design analysis, manufacturing, development testing and final technical/economic assessment of the selected engine concepts. The undertaking of these tasks will rely on the combined multidisciplinary expertise of partners from 4 member states and one associated member state.
