Fuel consumption improvement of an IC
engine by cylinder deactivation
The paper aims to analyse the fuel consumption gain of an IC engine equipped with cylinder deactivation technology, through software simulations. Data sets obtained with AVL BOOST simulation software were introduced in AVL CRUISE to run a NEDC cycle to demonstrate the feasibility of cylinder deactivation technology. Simulations were run separately for the urban cycle and then for extra-urban cycle to see what is the technology best suited for.
