Fuel Consumption Benefits of Indirect Charge Air Cooling in Commercial Vehicles
- 138 Downloads
Indirect charge air cooling has the potential to further reduce fuel consumption in commercial vehicles. Analysis of the transient system behaviour is of particular significance here. A Mahle test vehicle was equipped with an indirect charge air cooler and the fuel consumption benefits were analysed in comparison with a conventional direct charge air cooler.
The authors would like to thank Iveco for providing the test vehicle, for support with conversion and for the interesting discussions within the project.
