German term or phrase: drosselfrei Laststeuerung
I am translating an article on a new engine
development, and the word(s) that stumped me are
"drosselfrei Laststeuerung". Could it mean "open
throttle load control"?? but that doesn't make sense.
Here's the context:

"...zu den Entwicklungstendenzen beim Ottomotor
bewerten unter anderem Downsizing, ........sowie die
**drosselfreie Laststeuerung** als zielfuehrende
Massnahmen"

and in another sentence:

"...trug XYZ mit dazu bei, die **Laststeuerung mit
reduzierten Drosselverlusten** in die Serie umzusetzen.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Explanation:
throttle-free engine operation (as used in a bullet in the reference) would work nicely in your first sentence while throttle-free load control (in the paragraph below that header) offers a concise translation when you need it.

agree  Gareth McMillan: But I don't think W. quite understands that this "throttle free" concept doesn't mean you give the engine more or less throttle. It has more to do with making the engine react to loads by varying the valve timing rather than throttling.
