Influence of the Injection Pressure on the Combustion Performance and Emissions of Small GDI Engine Fuelled with Bio-Ethanol 2011-37-0007

Non-intrusive measurements were carried out in an optical spark ignition GDI engine in order to characterize the chemical and physical processes involved using gasoline and bio-ethanol fuel. In particular, an optical 4 strokes small single cylinder engine for two wheel vehicles was used. It was equipped with an elongated piston with a wide sapphire window in the head and quartz cylinder. Exhaust emissions and engine performances were evaluated during the imaging and spectral measurements in order to investigate the spray characteristics and flame propagation with high spatial and temporal resolution. Several engine conditions based on homogeneous charge mixture conditions were investigated considering the effect of injection pressure and ethanol fuel too. The simultaneous use of the high injection pressure and bio-ethanol showed to be a valid answer to reduction of pollutants without worsening the performances.
