Optimization of Natural Gas Storage System for Vehicles Equipped with Direct Injection System 952745
In our earlier papers on thermocontrolled tank storage system, we presented the basic concept of storing natural gas and the results from optimization of the vessel design. In this paper we are presenting optimization results of the entire storage system, assuming that the vehicle is running in a certain pre-scheduled pattern. Two kinds of vehicles have been considered for investigation, a city bus with a continuous running schedule and a car with a short run-park schedule. The initial waiting time, parking time, safe pressure ratio and range of the two vehicles have been investigated and then optimized to define the performance requirements.
