Mechanism Controlling Autoignition Derived from Transient Chemical Composition Analysis in HCCI 2007-01-1882

The chemical mechanism responsible for controlling ignition timing by using additives in HCCI has been investigated. Dimethyl ether (DME) and methanol were used as the main fuel and the additive, respectively. Fuel consumption and intermediate formation in the first stage (cool ignition) were measured with crank angle resolved pulse-valve sampling and exhaust gas analysis, where HCHO, HCOOH, CO, H2O2 and other species were detected as the intermediate. The effect of methanol addition retarding ignition is represented by an analytical model in which the growth rate of the chain reaction is reduced by the methanol addition.
