Simulation and Optimization of Thermodynamic Processes of Diesel Engine 740194
A mathematical model of an open-chamber diesel engine has been programmed for solution on a digital computer. The program incorporates an automatic procedure which, given the limits of design variables, will predict the values of these variables that will optimize engine performance. This technique can provide these results in a fraction of the time taken by parametric methods and provides a quick and efficient tool that can be used directly by the designer or the development engineer. Examples are given to demonstrate how the technique can be employed to maximize engine power to torque.
