In the light of a global trend for the tightening of the CO2 limits, the combination of the Miller process and exhaust gas turbocharging with variable turbine geometry represents a promising concept for efficiency improvements of modern gasoline engines. Using the example of a three- cylinder 1.5-l downsizing concept with 90 kW/l, FEV illustrates the differences between a variant with variable turbine geometry and a wastegate turbine with regards to achievable Miller ratio, fuel consumption and transient behaviour in this publication.
