A DoE Analysis on the Effects of Compression Ratio, Injection Timing, Injector Nozzle Hole Size and Number on Performance and Emissions in a Diesel Marine Engine 2007-01-0670

A DoE analysis was carried out to investigate the effects of the compression ratio, injection timing, injector nozzle hole size and number on performance and emissions in a diesel marine engine, aiming to find out the optimal combination between all the abovementioned parameters.
The study was performed on a six cylinder in line, 100 liter total displacement, diesel marine engine, by means of a 1-D engine simulation fluid-dynamic code, coupled with a multi-zone combustion model for oxide of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate (PM) prediction.
A preliminary detailed validation process, based on an extensive experimental data set, was carried out on the engine model concerning, in particular, the predicted heat release rate, the in-cylinder pressure trace and NOx emissions for several operating points of a propeller load curve.
Afterward a full factorial Design of Experiments (DoE) analysis was carried out in order to find out the optimal combination between compression ratio, injection timing, injector nozzle hole size and number aiming to reach the lowest brake specific fuel consumption value while complying with NOx emissions and peak firing pressures constraints.
