Claytex have released a brand new Modelica Library for Engine modelling. The Engines library is capable of modelling both Spark Ignition and Compression Ignition engines and is split into two variants with different levels of fidelity. The Mean Value version of the Engines library predicts the cycle averaged intake and exhaust flows, emissions and torque. The Crank Angle Resolved version predicts the complete cyclic intake and exhaust flows and torque.
Both versions of the Engines library have been designed to work with common engine architecture templates. This enables quick model set-up and ensures a consistent layout for a variety of engine architectures.
