Abstract: This paper describes the outcomes of a study carried out on a novel exhaust energy recovery system for a heavily downsized gasoline engine. The investigation was carried out based on a 1.0 L turbocharged gasoline engine offering the same performance as a 2.0 L model, with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions from 169 g/km to 99 g/km. This is to be obtained by the synergistic application of electrified boosting, stop/start technology, regenerative braking, torque assist and exhaust energy recovery systems.
