Research on Solar Thermal Energy Warming Diesel Engine Based on Reverse Heat Transfer of Coolant
In winter, the temperature of the coldest month is below -20℃.Low temperature makes it difficult to start a diesel engine, combust sufficiently, which increases fuel consumption and pollutes the environment. The use of electric power-driven auxiliary heating system increases the battery load and power consumption. Solar thermal energy has the advantages of easy access, clean and pollution-free. The coolant in the cylinder block of the diesel engine has a large contact area with the cylinder and is evenly distributed, which can be used as a heat transfer medium for warming up. A one-dimensional heat transfer model of the diesel engine block for the reverse heat transfer of the coolant is established, and the total heat required for the warming up is calculated by an iterative method in combination with the warming target.
