Development of Diesel Engines Fuelled with Natural Gas 2001-01-3505
Natural gas engines have widely been developed in the world because of the decrease of oil resources and strictness of the exhaust regulations. This paper introduces the main processes of designing diesel engines fuelled with natural gas and ignited by spark plugs. Secondly, it analyzes a number of problems considered during the process of designing. As an example, authors introduce the characteristic of a natural gas engine converted from a 4125 diesel engine and discuss the performances of the prototype engine according to results of the engine bed testing The result is satisfying.
