In an electromechanical valve actuated engine, the valves are driven by solenoid-type actuators and cam-shaft is eliminated. Control of each valve provides flexibility in valve timings over all engine conditions and achieves the benefits of variable valve timing(VVT). This paper is about investigation of Electro-mechanical actuator at simulated pressure conditions for a single cylinder engine. For this purpose, a scaled down actuator with reduced armature lift and high stiffness springs are being used. Experiments are conducted to measure valve release timings, transition times and contact velocities. Furthermore, discussion about the spring, magnetic, exhausts gas forces and their ability to actuate the system as desired.

Keywords: Electromechanical actuator (EMA), Variable valve timing, electromagnets.
