Large Engine Research Facility (LERF)

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.
