Waste Heat Recovery for a Diesel Tractor Engine: A Comparison Study
UPB, Dept.of Thermo., Eng., Therm. and Ref. Mach., Spl. Independenţei, nr 313, s.6, Romania
One of the major concerns of nowadays is related to the Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) from the thermal engines, especially regarding the high rating power engines. For Diesel tractor engines, long time operated at high loads, the amount of the saved energy is linked to a significant fuel economy. The proposed study is based on the AMESIM simulation code and performs a comparison between two methods of heat recovery: the one using a supplementary turbine (turbo-compound method) and that using an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC). The tested engine is an IVECO Cursor 10 Diesel engine type, equipping CASE tractors designed for agricultural activities. The energy savings provided by the engine exhaust gas heat recovery could be further used in supplementing the engine traction, either to be delivered to the auxiliary systems, leading in both cases to a decrease of the fuel consumption.
Key words: Diesel tractor engine / Waste Heat Recovery / Turbo-compound / Organic Rankine Cycle / fuel consumption decrease.
