Development of Improved Thermodynamic Model Using Cylinder Blow by and Double-Wiebe Functions for High Speed Diesel Engine 2018-01-0244

In the present work, a tuned gas dynamics based blow by model was used for prediction of thermodynamic state variables till start of combustion in a high speed diesel engine. The burn rate fraction was determined from experimental pressure trace using Rassweiller-Withrow method. Furthermore, suitable single and double Wiebe parameters, consistent with the experimental combustion behavior were determined statistically. The comparison with experimental heat release and burn rate fraction confirmed the unsuitability of single Wiebe function for diesel combustion. A stochastic zero-dimensional thermodynamic model was used to predict pressure traces for various load/fueling conditions. The results exhibited a sub-15% error margin between predicted and experimental pressure traces across all crank angles and fuelling rates. Finally, the model constants are proposed as a function of non-dimensional fuelling rate.
