Abstract

Gastone is EU project to develop a new powertrain concept based on energy recovery, energy storage, improvement of a natural gas engine, the electrification of the main auxiliaries and the development of an optimal strategy in order to raise the efficiency from 38% up to 50% at a vehicle level. To assist this project, a dynamic model in matlab/simulink has been generated. It has a modular structure which allows the evaluation of the impact for any change in the models/components/conditions and it has been applied to a target driving cycle (possible to change) and the benefits are expressed in terms of fuel saving and CO2 gas emissions reduction
