Dataset for "The Effect of Crankshaft Phasing and Port Timing Asymmetry on Opposed-Piston Engine Thermal Efficiency"

Opposed-piston, two-stroke engines reveal degrees of freedom that make them excellent candidates for next generation, highly efficient internal combustion engines for hybrid electric vehicles and power systems. This dataset contains results from GT-SUITE simulations of an opposed-piston, two-stroke engine that explore the influence of key control and geometrical parameters, specifically crankshaft phasing and intake and exhaust port height-to-stroke ratios, in obtaining best thermal efficiency. The results are generally reported in the form of contours of brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC), as a function of the aforementioned geometrical parameters of interest. This dataset contains folders corresponding to each figure in the corresponding article. Each folder contains the MATLAB code and any data required to generate the figure.

Documentation

Data collection method:

This dataset contains results generated by GT-SUITE simulations of an opposed piston two-stroke engine model, as described in the corresponding article (https://doi.org/10.3390/en14206696). That article describes the simulation set-up and the different cases that were simulated to generate these results.

Data processing and preparation activities:

The results in the corresponding article (https://doi.org/10.3390/en14206696) are generally reported in the form of contours of brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC), as a function of certain geometrical parameters of interest. This dataset contains folders corresponding to each figure in the corresponding article. Each folder contains the MATLAB code (.m files) and any data (.mat files) required to generate the figure. The interested party can run the MATLAB .m file to generate the corresponding figure.

Technical details and requirements:

GT-SUITE and MATLAB were used respectively to generate and plot the values contained in the dataset. But only MATLAB is required to regenerate the plots in the corresponding article (https://doi.org/10.3390/en14206696).

Additional information:

The data is contained in MATLAB .mat files.
