Ignition Mechanisms of HCCI Combustion Process Fueled With Methane/DME Composite Fuel 2005-01-0182

Homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) combustion of methane was performed using dimethyl ether (DME) as an ignition improver. The ignition mechanisms of the methane/DME/air HCCI process were investigated on the basis of the chemical kinetics. The engine test was also conducted to verify the calculation results, and to determine the operation range. Analysis of the results showed that DME was an excellent ignition improver for methane, having two functions of temperature rise and OH radical supply. It was also shown that the operation range was extended to an overall equivalence ratio of 0.54 without knocking, by controlling DME quantity.
