Investigation of Performance and Fuel Distribution of a Direct Injection Gas Engine Using LIF Measurement 1999-01-3291

In order to see the effect of injection timing and directions on the performance of a DI gas engine, an experimental engine was prepared, and firing tests were carried out. Also a laser induced fluorescence method was used to see in-cylinder fuel distribution. As the result, following conclusions were obtained. 1) NO2 could be used as a tracer substance to visualize in-cylinder gaseous fuel distribution. 2) Injection timing had large influence on the fuel distribution and the performance of the DI engine. 3) In-cylinder fuel distribution and operation stability of the DI engine was also affected by injection directions.
