Engine cold-start optimization

Cold-start optimization to minimize exhaust emissions.

Measures to optimize engine performance during the cold-start and warm-up phases can help to reduce emissions by a significant margin. Controlling emissions at each stage is crucial to the development of modern exhaust aftertreatment systems. We have a wide range of test equipment to help you optimize cold-start performance:

  • Dynamic test benches with comprehensive conditioning systems for intake air, fuel, oil and coolant
  • Calculation programs for cycle analysis
  • ASAP3 and CAN bus interfaces to the ECU in order to record both physical measurements and internal ECU indicators in the trial records
  • DOE computer to control the map optimization process

The potential offered by this combination of tools is unique within Europe and makes it possible to optimize an engine’s cold-start behavior quickly and efficiently.
