This 3-day course is designed for new users of GT-POWER and GT-SUITE that are interested in modeling internal combustion engines. This course will focus on engine simulation through the use of GT-POWER. Each student will be provided with a computer. The course will include the construction of models and use of the software, which will enable the participants to use the software immediately. It will cover the following topics:

Introductory Concepts of GT-SUITE

  • 1-D Flow Simulation
  • Discretization of 1-D Models
  • Model Setup- initialization, parameters sweeps, convergence Optimization/Design of Experiments
  • Post-processing (GT-POST)
  • Subassemblies: internal, external, encryption of subassemblies

The following engine modeling topics will be included:

  • Modeling of: manifolds, valves, combustion, heat transfer and fuel injection
  • Non-Predictive Combustion for Gasoline and Diesel Engines
  • Cylinder Pressure Analysis
  • Turbochargers
  • EGR
  • Controls Library
  • Transient Simulation
  • Predictive Combustion Modeling

If time permits at the end of the class, additional topics can be covered including introductions to: Coupling with Simulink, CFD Coupling, and Exhaust Aftertreatment.
