A Study on Higher Thermal Efficiency and Lower Cooling Loss in Diesel Engine 2019-01-2283
The purpose of this study is to achieve thermal efficiency improvement and cooling loss reduction of a diesel engine with a combustion concept of earlier evaporation, higher entrainment, and compact spray flame. In order to realize this concept, the paper focused on two-component fuel (nC5H12/nC10H22) with high evaporation. In this paper, the effects of two-component fuel on thermal efficiency and exhaust characteristics are examined by using single cylinder diesel engine. In addition, spray characteristics are revealed in an optically accessible chamber and combustion characteristics are revealed by using RCEM.
