Study of Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition Using a Rapid Compression Machine 2001-01-1033

The purpose of this study is to explain the characteristics of homogeneous charge compression ignition. n-Heptane, which has the same cetane number as diesel fuel, was chosen for the fuel. A rapid compression machine was used to clarify the effects of air-fuel ratio, O2 concentration, and compression temperature on ignition delay and NOx emission. These investigations allowed the introduction of a formula for ignition delay.
