More Torque, Less Fuel

A combination of a turbocharged engine and an electric motor delivers the same power as a larger naturally aspirated engine, but consumes less fuel and cuts toxic emissions. A project running at FEV Motorentechnik aims to optimize the operating strategy for these "downsized engines". They consume considerably less fuel, yet have excellent acceleration behavior. FEV is using a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator from dSPACE to validate the engine control.
