    pg(s) 10-13

    In this paper an experimental study of exhaust gas parameters of a modern diesel engine is presented. The engine under study is developed for passenger car. It was used a flexible engine management system based on National Instruments real-time controller and LabVIEW code. However, basic settings of the engine calibration values were used over the test. The engine was tested at seventeen operating points which correspond to real operating mode in NEDC of the vehicle. In order to define the engine speed and load a vehicle driving model was used. Finally, exhaust mass flow and temperature were studied as well as exhaust enthalpy was estimated.

    pg(s) 14-17

    This paper presents numerical analysis of waste heat recovery from engine exhaust gases by means of Rankine cycle and Organic Rankine cycle. Both technologies are widely studied in combustion engines but there are still not solid statements which should be chosen.

    The heat source in this study is the exhaust system of a modern diesel engine, developed for passenger car. Firstly, the engine was experimentally studied at stationary operating mode. Thus, exhaust gas parameters such as: mass flow rate, temperature and enthalpy were obtained at seventeen operating points which correspond to real operating mode of vehicle in NEDC. A simulation model of waste heat recovery system was developed. Based on that model, a numerical code was created in Python as CoolProp open-source platform was used to determine working fluid parameters. Lastly, Rankine cycle and Organic Rankine Cycle output power and efficiency were studied. The results revealed that Organic Rankine cycle using R245fa as working fluid provides better efficiency than steam Rankine cycle. Maximum recovered power was estimated to be 1.69kW while for the steam Rankine cycle it was 1.43kW.

    pg(s) 20-23

    Ground level ozone is one major secondary pollutant which is formed in the atmosphere by a variety of photochemical reactions involving volatile organic compounds and oxides of nitrogen in the presence of sunlight. Due to their reactivity, the exhaust emissions from heavy duty diesel engines are of particular concern and it is desirable to reduce the ozone forming potential of the exhaust emissions by reducing the mass of exhaust emissions. This study investigates the effect of retrofitted after-treatment devices and ultra-low sulfur diesel fuels on the ozone forming potential of exhaust emissions from heavy-duty off-road diesel engines. Specifically, the objective was to determine the effect of two diesel particulate filters and two ultra-low sulfur diesel fuels on the ozone forming potential from the 3 test diesel engines retrofitted with and without passive diesel particulate filters.

    pg(s) 26-28

    In regional market of tourist transport services, it is necessary to find new forms of relationships between the market entities, since the currently existing forms are characterized by many negative aspects, and in modern economic conditions they are inadequately effective. As a result of analyzing and carrying out research works on organizational models currently existing in the market of tourist transport services, it has been established that at a regional level that it is expedient to find such a form of relationships between the market entities as consolidation of travel companies and transporters (having specialist vehicles). Such form of consolidation allows for resolving numerous problems arising during the travel catering process, as well as enables travel companies to be more efficient, reduce the number of intermediaries between the market entities, minimize costs and improve the quality of transport services.

  • MIXED TRAFFIC WITH DIFFERENT PERCENTAGE RATES OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES AND ITS ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCE IN URBAN AREAS

    pg(s) 38-41

    The development of high power electronics, improvement of existing and emerging of new battery technologies and optimization of electric motors over the last decade are some of the issues that have raised the interest in electric vehicles. Based solely on tank to wheel analyses, electric vehicles are regarded as zero emission vehicles. Regarding these facts, the research presented in this paper is focused on mixed traffic with different percentage rates of electric vehicles and its environmental influence in urban areas. A model of a mixed traffic stream comprised of conventional and electric vehicles was built upon a microscopic single lane urban traffic simulator.

    Through number of parallel simulations of solely conventional and mixed traffic stream and analysis of the results, we have evaluated the influence that certain presence rates of electric vehicles in the mixed traffic stream have on the exhaust emission. The results that we have obtained are constrained by the assumption that the electric energy used by the electric vehicles originates from renewable energy sources.
