Application of Scavenging-Port Injection of CNG to a Boat Engine at Running Conditions 2009-32-0077
In a boat two-stroke two-cylinder engine, SC-port fuel injection of CNG was applied at running condition in comparison with the fuelling with a gas-mixer. Three methods of tests were employed; operation at a test-bench, at an anchored condition and on a running boat. In a lower engine speed, the beneficial effect of higher thermal efficiency was obtained, while in higher engine speed range especially at the running condition, it has the inverse effect of lower thermal efficiency. It is based on the limited range of lower injection rate of the fuel injectors, and thus the fuel injection rate of this type of fuel injectors has a key role of developing the technology of the SC-port injection.
