The Entropy Generation Minimization (EGM) method is based on the analysis by three sciences (thermodynamics, fluid flow and heat transfer) of the different processes that may occur in a system or in an equipment. Herein the EGM method is applied to internal combustion engines to determine the entropy generation caused by different processes. A model incorporating entropy generation calculations is used to assess various engines configurations. Otto cycle was tested and Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and Variable Compression Ratio (VCR) were applied so thermodynamic benefits could be tested and evaluated. With the referred model, the Miller cycle variables are analyzed in order to establish the best working conditions of an engine under a certain load. The intake and exhaust valve timing, combustion start, compression ratio adjustment and heat transfer are the variables for which a best working condition is determined based on the minimization of the entropy generation of the several engine processes.
