Gasoline compression ignition (GCI) is a cost-effective approach to achieving diesel-like efficiencies with low emissions. The fundamental architecture of the two-stroke Achates Power Opposed-Piston (OP) Engine enables GCI by decoupling piston motion from cylinder scavenging, allowing for flexible and independent control of cylinder residual fraction and temperature leading to improved low-load combustion. In addition, the high peak cylinder pressure and noise challenges at high-load operation are mitigated by the lower brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) operation and faster heat release for the same pressure rise rate of the OP Engine. These advantages further solidify the performance benefits of the OP Engine and demonstrate the near-term feasibility of advanced combustion technologies, enabled by the opposed-piston architecture. This paper presents initial results from steady-state testing on a brand new 2.7-L OP GCI multi-cylinder engine (MCE) designed for light-duty truck applications. Successful GCI operation calls for a high compression ratio (CR), leading to higher combustion stability at low loads, higher efficiencies, and lower cycle HC + NOX emissions. Initial results show a cycle average brake thermal efficiency (BTE) of 31.7%, which is already greater than 11% conventional engines, after only ten weeks of testing. Emissions results suggest that Tier 3 Bin 160 levels can be achieved using a traditional diesel after-treatment system. Combustion noise was well controlled at or below the United States Council for Automotive Research limits. In addition, initial results on catalyst light-off mode with GCI are also presented.
