This work deals with the analysis of the performance and emissions of ethanol HCCI/PSCCI engines by means of a Dynamic Adaptive Chemistry (DAC) technique. The implementation of such a technique provides a reduction of the computational cost of the simulations without compromising the reliability of the results. Very accurate results, in terms of pressure and heat release rate profiles and CO, CO2 and UHC emissions, are obtained with ethanol as the only species for the DRGEP graph search both with the charge uniformly distributed in the combustion chamber and by directly injecting liquid fuel in the same chamber. The global speed up of DAC simulations is twice with respect to a full mechanism which consists of 57 species and 288 reactions and a further increase is expected when DAC is compared to very detailed kinetics.
