Study on Characteristics of Combined PCCI and Conventional Diesel Combustion 2019-01-2169
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the characteristics of combustion that combine premixed charge compression ignition (PCCI)-based combustion with conventional mixing controlled combustion. In this type of combustion, it is supposed that the combustion duration is shortened due to the synchronization of the timing of two types of combustions. In addition, the cooling loss caused by spray impingement is expected to decrease by the reduction of the proportion of mixing controlled combustion. In this study, the effect of injection pressure, injection timing, and split injection on thermal efficiency and emissions were investigated in order to determine the appropriate injection parameters for PCCI-based combustion to realize the proposed combustion concept.
