In this 60-minute webinar, Satyum Joshi, Sensior Engineer of Commerical Engines at FEV, discussed the technical aspects of the ITES system and importance of developing fuel efficient components.
Description: In order to reduce fuel consumption, engine manufacturers are using advanced boosting systems, electrification and waste recovery technologies to downsize and downspeed engines.
FEV recently developed a new technology - the ITES system. This system integrates turbo-compounding, electrification, and supercharging into one auxiliary component of a medium-duty or heavy-duty engine. The unit integrates a turbo-compound turbine, a centrifugal compressor and an electric motor-generator over a planetary gear set, and is mechanically connected to the engine crankshaft via a clutch.
This approach reduces cost and required space, and provides an increase in engine efficiency when compared to the independent integration of each of these technologies. FEV predicts up to a 15% fuel economy improvement for a medium-duty truck on an FTP certification cycle with a downsized engine and the ITES system.
