Extremely robust cylinder pressure sensor for thermodynamic control concepts on high efficient gas engine

The IMES GmbH has been developing a new type of very robust cylinder pressure sensor. Stefan Neumann, CEO of IMES will present the high robust sensor (HRS) during CIMAC congress on 11th June 2019.

The developments of new 2- and 4-stroke gas engines are increasingly penetrating into operating areas which require a very precise knowledge of the current state of the combustion process in each cylinder for reliable control and monitoring concepts. The closed loop combustion control (CLCC) has become established in a new generation of gas engines and enables a very high engine efficiency even by using various types of fuel.

Due to the trend to higher indicated mean effective pressure (IMEP) on small, medium and large gas engines with speed ranges of 100…1800 rpm, the required cylinder pressure sensors are subject to increasing operating- and environmental conditions.

Thus a new era for extremely robust and high accurate cylinder pressure sensors with long-term stability has started...
