Due to increasing restrictive legislation, modern DF-engines become more and more important, especially in marine application to meet the IMO Tier III limits in coastal areas, without using complex exhaust gas after-treatment systems. Compared to conventional combustion processes in diesel or gas engines, the characteristics of the Dual-Fuel process are not fully understand and the increased degree of freedom leads to a demanding application and test effort. To handle the resulting complexity for the development of engine control functions, it is essential to support the development process with suitable simulation methods.
