Development of a Fuel Injection Strategy for a Diesel Engine Fumigated with Ethanol 2017-32-0103

Ethanol is a good choice for alternative fuel which is prefer to dual fuel diesel engine. In this study, ethanol will be injected in to the intake manifold to cool down the intake temperature and reduce the amount of diesel fuel consumption. And also, use a technique called internal exhaust gas recirculation. The exhaust valve will be reopened during the intake stroke for 4mm. to vaporized the injected ethanol in the combustion chamber. The objective of this research is to study the effect of injection timing of dual fuel (diesel) on the engine performance and exhaust emissions of a supercharged, single cylinder 4-stroke direct injection compression ignition engine including ethanol fumigation and internal EGR, and also varying the injection pressure of diesel. Then using ethanol fuel as a secondary fuel to replace the energy input from diesel fuel by 10, 20, and 30%.
