ASM Gasoline Engine

Real-time gasoline engine simulation model

Mean value engine model with combustion torque modulation.

The physical engine characteristics are represented by a mean value engine model with crank-angle-based torque modulation, dynamic manifold pressure, temperature calculation, and several fuel injection models. A soft ECU is included for scenarios where a real ECU is not available, for example, in offline simulation. To simulate the engine in an automotive system (car or truck), the engine model incorporates a longitudinal drivetrain model with manual and automatic transmission, a clutch, a torque converter, a starter, and a test bench mode. Models for the environment and driver complement the virtual powertrain.

Features at a Glance

  • Up to 20-cylinder gasoline applications
  • Map-based turbocharger for boost pressure calculation
  • Gasoline fuel injection system: common-rail system including direct injector, intake manifold injector and tank model
  • Gasoline engine with homogenous and stratified combustion modes
  • Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) of exhaust and unburned air with EGR cooler
  • Longitudinal driver for standard cycles (FTP-75, NEDC, J10-15, etc.)
  • Easy to expand into a comprehensive virtual vehicle by adding ASM Vehicle Dynamics
  • Simulation with real ECU in hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems and simulated soft ECU in model-in-the-loop (MIL) simulation
  • Start/stop system support
