New variable valve actuation technology

To develop new diesel engine combustion processes, such as HCCI, it is necessary to have a technological solution that allows significant flexibility in the control of the engine operating conditions. Importantly, for this purpose it is essential to have flexibility in the control of the intake and exhaust valve events.

Of the project partners, LOTUS has from its "Pre-existing Know-how" an innovative electro-hydraulic variable valve actuation technology (VVA) that can be adapted, at least as a research and development tool, to be used in a diesel HCCI combustion engine. It has been combined with IFP's "Pre-existing Know-how" and allowed to earn "Knowledge" during the project on the valve control strategies suitable for HCCI.
