WAVE - real-time analysis

Real-time analysis

WAVE-RT provides real-time, crank-angle resolved engine models for testing new engine management systems for both SiL and HiL analysis and rapid prototype control units ( http://www.ricardo.com/rCube2) and mini computers equipped with ARM processor e.g. Raspberry PI ( www.raspberrypi.org). It allows the design of advanced performance and emission control, emission and CO2 reduction, virtual sensors and OBD improvements.

Key features

  • Full 1-D crank-angle based real-time gas thermodynamic code
  • Aiming 3-4 times faster run than real-time
    • No Geometry Simplification needed
    • Not limited by number of elements
    • Not limited by number of cylinders
  • In-cycle modelling of individual cylinders
  • Global transient structure conduction
    • Cold starts and engine stop-start cool downs
  • Dynamic wave effects along air paths
    • No tuning required to compensate for wave effects
  • Diesel, Gaoline, Gas, Genset and flow bench operation
  • Standard Turbomachinery
    • Fixed geometry compressors
    • Fixed and variable geometry turbines
  • Semi-predictive Multi-Wiebe combustion
  • Predicitive injection driven diesel combustion
