Abstract
Combining AED Corp. and its multi-disciplinary team's extensive and unique heavy fuel engine (HFE) hardware development experience with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) diesel engine components, a concept diesel engine demonstrator (CDED) will be designed. Configured to facilitate dyno test exploration of power density, heat rejection, and fuel efficiency, the lubrication, cooling, and supercharger will be separately controlled. A structurally robust, DOHC 4-valve global COTS engine, with its abundance of super duty components, will be the diesel technology's development base. The CDED will be built and dyno tested to evaluate design concepts and advanced performance technologies. Knowledge gained will advance the design of the follow-on 300 and 600-hp Advanced Military Diesel Engine (AMDE) demonstrators. U.S. truck and European auto diesels incorporate the advanced technologies and components required to provide the ADME technology base. Likewise, regenerative braking hybrid electric drive buses, SUVs, trucks and autos incorporate the technologies and components required for hybrid electric propulsion systems. Results of this work and future R&D will be the development of dual use HPD, LSHR diesel technologies to a state readily adaptable to multi-cylinder engines 50 to 600-hp; deliver two developed AMDE demonstrators suitable for production prototyping; and the hybrid electric drive concept engineering to incorporate both in selected FCS HEVs.
