A fuel injection meter and controller has been developed which (1) measures the instantaneous injection rate and the total mass of fuel injected, and (2) controls the mass of fuel injected and injection pressure. The injection rate is computed from instantaneous measurements of the velocity of a pumping plunger and the pressure of fuel injection.
A mathematical model of the meter and controller was developed to futher the understanding of various design and operating parameters on the injection rate. Compressibility of the fuel is accounted for. Good agreement is realized between numerically computed injection pressure and rate histories with corresponding experimental results.
