Simulation facility of Engine Research Lab is capable for conducting comprehensive study of combustion, performance and emission parameters of engines.  This facility is an excellent tool for adaptations of preliminary investigations of newer alternative fuels in existing engines and development of new engines for alternative fuels. ERL have dedicated workstation equipped with 1-D and 3-D software, which are GT Suite and Converge for carrying out simulations. GT-Power is designed for steady state and transient simulations suitable for engine/powertrain control analysis and can be used to simulate all kinds of IC engines. The software uses 1-D gas dynamics to represent the flow and heat transfer in the components of the engine model. Converge CFD is a 3D modelling software that enables us to view the graphical interface for the element that cannot be easily modelled and visualized with 1-D software such as GT-Power.
