Reduction of NOx, Smoke, BSFC, and Maximum Combustion Pressure by Low Compression Ratios in a Diesel Engine Fuelled by Emulsified Fuel 920464

This investigation reports diesel engine performance of water-in-gas oil emulsified fuel and gas oil at compression ratios of 13.6, 15.6, and 17.0.
It was confirmed that without worsening the specific fuel consumption, low compression ratios with emulsified fuel operation result in significant reductions in NOx concentration, reduced maximum combustion pressure, and decreased smoke density when compared with the 17.0 compression ratio for gas oil operation.
