EDI – Engine Control System

Our engine control system will aid you in maximizing your OEM gas engine’s uptime and performance by enabling remote control, predictive maintenance and real-time monitoring of all parameters you desire amongst a vast range of other benefits that will have your OEM gas engine running like never before.

AORA – Advanced Open Retrofit Application

PowerUP proudly presents AORA control system for MWM® engines as a retrofit solution. In November 2022, the first engine (TCG2016V12) was upgraded and commissioned successfully with AORA. With PowerUP’s control system, customers have full access to all the relevant parameters and insights of the performance to effectively control their gas engines.

AORA is able to provide tailored solutions that meet customer needs. PowerUP´s control system offers highest flexibility when it comes to additional gear like sensors and meters, as well as free definition of Access Levels and various mix control principles (LEANOX; Combustion Temp.). Also included is cloud & remote connection through our Competence Center which offers convenient support at any time.

PowerUP’s AORA control system for MWM® is the perfect choice for a reliable and tailor-made retrofit solution!

The EDI Principle

• Extensively tested and proven across a variety of series 3,4 and 6 engines with different applications our EDI-system is providing expert data analysis tools, simplified for best user experience and backed with our extensive knowledge of OEM gas engines.

• Gain new insights on your engine with custom trending, real-time data of engine performance- and output-parameters, component-individual test-mode and details for parts such as turbo-bypass & throttle-valve. EDI also comes with huge internal storage to provide an overview of historical operational data on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.

• Experience a simple and intuitive user interface on a generously sized touch-display and feel safe with frequent and customer-specific updates.

• A wide range of interfaces makes it the ideal control centre for integration of a variety of different components.
To optimize gas engines in cogeneration plants, sensors and actuators are needed which cannot be integrated into a classic PLC-based system – this is where the AVAT-technology software and hardware modules come into use e.g. for our cylinder-selective knock-control and misfire-detection.

• Your EDI engine control system is delivered with all wiring-diagrams, user’s manual, description of functional characteristics and is installed, commissioned and adapted to your specific needs and requirements by our experienced experts.

• The EDI retrofit is available for all stationary cogeneration plants and containerized systems as well as island- and grid-parallel operation modes, furthermore for customer-specific applications on-demand.


  • Full access, no password-limitations
  • Cylinder-individual knock-control with performance optimization
  • Cylinder-individual misfire-detection with automatic power reduction down to engine shutdown
  • Monitoring and individual trending of all sensors and measured values
  • Control and monitoring of all cooling and heating circuits
  • Integration of cogeneration-plant controls (peripherals)
  • Start/Stop sequences for island and grid-parallel operation
  • Compatibility with TecJet applications
  • Control of engine speed, power and air/gas mixture
  • Turbo-bypass control and ignition management
  • CAN connection to the ignition system
  • Fan control for dry and hybrid coolers
  • Control of flow-side temperature even in part-load operation

The Aora Principle

Our AORA system has been extensively tested and installed in a variety of engines with different applications. It offers expert data analysis tools that are simplified for an optimal user experience and based on our comprehensive knowledge of gas engines.

  • Gain new insights into your engine with custom trends, real-time data on engine performance, and performance parameters, as well as component-specific test mode.
  • Experience a simple and intuitive user interface on a generous touch display and feel secure with custom updates and additional 24-hour helpdesk on request.
  • A wide range of interfaces makes the control the ideal control center for the integration of a variety of different components. For the optimization of gas engines in CHP plants, sensors and actuators are required that cannot be integrated into a traditional PLC-based system – this is where the software and hardware modules of the technology come into play, for instance, for our cylinder-specific knock detection.
  • Your AORA engine control system comes with all circuit diagrams, user manual, and a description of the functional characteristics and is installed, commissioned, and tailored to your specific needs and requirements by our experienced experts.
  • The AORA retrofit is available for all stationary CHP plants and container systems as well as for island and grid-parallel operating modes and for custom applications.


  • Full access, no password restrictions
  • Cylinder-specific knock control with power optimization
  • Monitoring and trend recording of all sensors and measurements
  • Control and monitoring of all cooling and heating circuits
  • Integration of CHP plant controls (peripheral devices)
  • Start/Stop sequences for island and grid-parallel operation
  • Control of engine speed, power, and air/gas mixture
  • CAN connection to the ignition system
  • Fan control for dry and hybrid coolers
  • Control of the flow-side temperature even in partial load operation
