Effects of Spark Ignition Timing on Exhaust Gas Component and Temperature with Wood Biomass Gasifier 2013-32-9115
Small wood biomass gasifier was developed and co-generation system supplying electric power and heat with small spark ignition internal combustion engine (SI-ICE) was investigated. The balance of electric power and heat flux will be controlled with ignition timing and the exhaust gas components were discussed. The wood biomass gasifier (downdraft type) had 105mm in inner diameter and 1000mm in length and the reaction zone temperature was 900deg-C at 68NL/min in intake air flow. The SI-ICE had 290cc in displacement and 8.4 in compression ratio and was driven at 1500rpm. The ignition angle was changed from 30deg-BTDC to 25deg-BTDC with almost same exhaust gas components. The exhaust gas temperature was from 520deg-C to 555deg-C.
