Competence centers and focus areas
KCFP – Centre of Competence in Combustion Processes - focuses on combustion processes between "conventional" HCCI (Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition) and the classical Otto and Diesel concepts. Partially Premixed Combustion (PPC) with the right level of premixed combustion is a very promising concept that KCFP pursues.
CERC - Combustion Engine Research Center - concentrates on research aiming for reductions both of fuel consumption and engine exhaust emissions. The projects at the centre include both experimental validation of models and systems and new concepts associated with alternative fuels.
CCGEx – Competence Center for Gas Exchange - focuses on research regarding gas management in modern internal combustion engines for vehicles. The aim is to make engines more effective and environment-friendly and decrease fuel consumption without losing performance.
