The Effects of Injection Conditions and Combustion Chamber Geometry on Performance and Emissions of DI-PCCI Operation in a Diesel Engine 2007-01-1874
The present study aims to obtain a strategy for optimizing the combination of injection conditions and combustion chamber geometry to achieve low carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and smoke emissions with high thermal efficiency at low loads in direct-injection premixed charge compression ignition (DI-PCCI) operation in a diesel engine. To this end, experiments were performed using a naturally-aspirated single-cylinder DI diesel engine equipped with a common-rail injection system and a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system under various injection conditions, including injection timing, injection angle and injection quantity, and combustion chamber geometry. The results indicate that CO emission was reduced at injection timings that provide high peak heat release rates. To improve the NOx-CO trade-off relation, the spray angle should be properly selected depending on the combustion chamber geometry.
