Based on GT-Power software, the simulation model of an Argon cycle engine(Argon engine) which uses Argon as working medium in place of Air(N2) is presented. The model was calibrated using the experimental data from a GDI engine. The result shows that the model was proved to be feasible for simulation. This paper discusses the effect of Argon gas volume percentage, compression ratio, ignition timing and impurities of mixtures on Argon engine performance and gives several methods to recover the engine output power and torque.
