Experimental Analysis of the Operating Parameter Influence on the application of Low Temperature Combustion in the Modern Diesel Engines 2007-01-1839

The present paper describes the effects of some operating parameters on the performance of a single cylinder research engine when it runs under Low Temperature Combustion (LTC) conditions.
Aim of the experimental work was to explore the potential of the control of each parameter on the improvement of LTC application to the modern LD diesel engines for passenger cars.
In particular, the effects on LTC performance of the following operating parameters in different engine test points were analyzed: intake air temperature, exhaust EGR cooler temperature, intake pipe pressure, exhaust pipe pressure and swirl ratio.
Some parameters have shown a particular influence on the improvement of EGR tolerability for maximum NOx reduction preserving fuel consumption and smoke, while others have evidenced poor sensitivity.
