Investigation on the Re-Starting Characteristics of a Motorcycle Engine Performing an Idle-Stop Approach 2013-32-9093
In this study, the re-starting characteristics of a motorcycle engine with idle-stop were investigated. Generally when turning off the engine, there is; or when restarting engine, the air-fuel mixture will become rich to cause the incomplete combustion. When the restarting period is shortened, the aforementioned phenomena would be improved. The aim of this study was to shorten the engine re-starting time during start-up. In the initial stage of the study, the gear ratio of the starter was changed, and the parameters of the engine speed and cylinder pressure were measured and analyzed. The results showed that supplying the additional fuel injection duration of 3 milliseconds into the combustion chamber before the engine was stopped would give the quicker restarting characteristics.
