Heating Systems for Cold Starting of IC Engines 920002
Start-up of a diesel engine in low ambient temperatures is difficult or even impossible without additional devices which assist in this task. The problem of engine start-up is magnified at subzero ambient temperatures. This paper presents selected results of theoretical and experimental investigations of various heating systems which allow successful start-up of a Diesel engine in such low temperatures. The presented results provide a guidance for selecting a suitable heating system.
