Title: Computer simulations of a hydrogen fueled internal combustion engine
Author: Halmari, Jaakko Jalmari
Abstract: Ricardo WAVE was used to simulate the hydrogen internal combustion engine used in Texas Tech University’s FutureTruck Ford Explorer . Initially , a naturally aspirated gasoline engine was simulated , followed by the supercharged hydrogen engine . The objective of these simulations was to maximize power of the hydrogen engine , while minimizing the emissions and fuel consumption . Among the variables which were changed , were the equivalence ratio , compression ratio , throttle opening , camshaft timing , and exhaust size . The simulation results studied included the volumetric efficiency , fuel consumption , as well as NO emissions . Several results were compared to the gasoline baseline model .
