Large Engine Research Facility (LERF)
Large Engine Research Facility at PSI.
Scope of project
To investigate emission reductions or efficiency improvement potentials of large engines, simulation
and laboratory scale experiments (single cylinder engine and high pressure/high temperature
combustions chambers) show significant limits. Therefore a test rig for a 1.2 MW mechanical output
diesel engine will be realized to test concepts for future NOx-emission standards on a full scale engine.
The test facility is equipped with a dynamic generator set to allow transient operation.
