Maintaining low exhaust emissions on a turbocharged, natural gas engine through the speed and load range requires precise control of the air–fuel ratio. Changes in ambient conditions or fuel heating value will cause the air–fuel ratio to change substantially. By combining air–gas pressure with preturbine temperature control, the air–fuel ratio can be maintained regardless of changes in the ambient conditions or the fuel’s heating value. Design conditions and operating results are presented for an air–fuel controller for a turbocharged engine.
