Most of the passenger vehicles will still feature Internal Combustion Engines for the coming years. Exhaust heat lost need to be addressed to realize further fuel efficiency & emissions improvement required by regulations. After reviewing design possibilities of such systems, this paper describes test methodology, results and presents optimized proposal combining Heat Storage Unit & Exhaust Heat Recovery is presented.
