Analysis of Mixture Conditions Close to Spark Plug Location using a Time Resolved Gas Sampling Valve 982473
The quality of air-/fuel-mixture is of prime importance for cycle fluctuations of combustion. Investigations of mixture formation and conditions in SI engines have been subject of intensive research since many years.
The scope of this work was to investigate crank angle resolved determination of qualitative and quantitative mixture conditions inside the combustion chamber in dependence on various engine operating conditions. For this experimental investigation a time resolved Gas Sampling Valve (GSV) was combined with a flame ionisation detector (FID), a CO2-analyzer and a mass spectrometer. The GSV also enables the determination of residual gas concentration. Measurements on a DI gasoline engine show influences of air-/fuel-mixture in dependence on various engine operating conditions when the engine runs in charge stratification mode. Moreover, experimental results of local mixture composi-tion are compared with fuel distribution, calculated from CFD-codes.
