Thermal Efficiency Improvements with Split Primary Fuel Injections in Semi-Premixed Diesel Combustion with Multi-Peak Shaped Heat Release 2019-01-2170

To improve the combustion characteristics in semi-premixed diesel combustion, consisting in the first-stage premixed combustion of the primary fuel injection and the second-stage spray combustion of the secondary injection, the effect of splitting the primary injection was investigated in a diesel engine and analyzed with a CFD. The indicated thermal efficiency improves due to reductions in heat transfer losses to the in-cylinder wall and the combustion noise is suppressed with the split primary injections. The CFD analysis showed that the reduction in heat transfer loss with the split primary injections is due to a decrease in the combustion quantity near the combustion chamber wall.
