 Workpackage 4: Turbocompound engine/hot engine
 

AIM: to examine low heat rejection engines and exhaust gas separation allowing improved emissions handling and increased efficiency through compound cycle systems .

Objectives:

  • To study and evaluate turbo-compound systems that use the “hot engine” concept
  • To design and test prototype combined cycle systems
  • To validate the suitability and reliability of chosen solutions
  • To implement the developed system on a seagoing vessel

The Workpackage consists of two Tasks:

Task 4.1: Combined Cycle

Task 4.2: Hot engine
