Development of High Thermal Efficiency and Small-Size Gas Engine System Using Biomass Gas Fuel 2007-01-2042
Biomass is one of the attractive alternative fuels, which exists dispersively. Small size gas engine power generation with gasification biomass gas is one of the efficient methods. However, since its calorific value is lower and its composition can be affected by gasifying conditions, it is difficult to stabilize and achieve high thermal efficiency engine operation.
This study aims to develop a small size gas engine system with biomass gas by modifying the control system of a conventional spark ignition engine. In this paper, effect of fuel composition on combustion was clarified experimentally to get guideline for the engine control system.
