The Institut für Automatisierung und Informatik Wernigerode (Institute of Automation and Informatics, IAI) in Germany has been working with Harz University for some years now on a linear engine concept for operating gas exchange valves in combustion engines. Their research has produced an electromotor valve gear that combines the advantages of variable mechanical valve gears with those of electromechanical valve gears. A dSPACE prototyping system was used for laboratory tests.
