Monitoring Intermediate Species and Analysis of Their Role in HCCI Combustion 2005-24-036
Two different species measurements have been conducted for compression ignition of dimethyl ether in a motored engine. Crank angle resolved pulse-valve sampling with a resolution improvement scheme enabled to detect partial fuel consumption and formation of intermediate like H2O2 and HCHO at a cool ignition, as well as their total consumption at a hot ignition. FTIR analysis of exhaust gas in single cool ignition conditions confirmed formation of HCOOH and HCOOCH3 in cool ignitions. Results obtained in a range of equivalence ratio support the advantage of 2000 version of Curran et al. DME oxidation model.
