The calibration of combustion engines has become a complex procedure, due to the numerous degrees of freedom given by the ECU controls.
Fueling efficiency, exhaust emissions and engine performance are in function of fuel injection, ignition timing, EGR rates, warm-up strategies, etc.

BASTRA is giving support in engine calibration by working out control strategies for optimized engine performance. This is realized by interfacing Engine-Cycle-Simulation process (pre-mapping the engine controls) with test bed runs for refinement of the final calibration.

BASTRA is working on engine calibration for carburettor engines as well as for EFI engines.
