Calibration serves to determine the best settings for an engine. IFP Energies nouvelles is extending the scope of its expertise and its activities in this field.
Calibration is a crucial stage in engine development. IFP Energies nouvelles is developing the experimental tools and advanced methodologies essential to this phase:
This approach covers the engine's stabilized and transient operating modes.
Working with the powertrain design and testing company D2T, IFP Energies nouvelles has also contributed to the development of MORPHEE 2, the new test bench supervision software. This software was launched on the market by D2T at the beginning of 2007.
In this field, IFP Energies nouvelles's work is aimed at determining several tens of thousands of parameters for the engine control of a modern vehicle in all circumstances.
This calibration step is a fundamental stage in the creation of a vehicle: it directly affects the final quality of the product.
Example of an achievement: development and adaptations of a natural gas-powered engine, a small urban hybrid vehicle.
