The diesel engine has an injector that pus fuel into the piston cavity therefore compressing it and it turns into exhaust and goes out of the engine through the manifold and into the turbo and out the exhaust pipe. The engine was first showed on a public floor in 1898. After
The potential usage of diesel engines in the heavy duty vehicles generally reduces the fossil fuel consumption because of its higher thermal efficiency. However, the efficiency of the engine changes with the changes in the operating load. Generally, the part load efficiency is lower than the full load efficiency in diesel engines. This efficiency fluctuation is due to the alteration of heat release rate relative to the changes in the load. The heat release rate changes responsible for the efficiency changes are difficult to measure experimentally.
The diesel engine is a compression and bases its operation in pressurizing the gas (air) contained in the cylinder volume, reaching a high pressure and temperature above 500 ° C, which means that when this fuel is sprayed hot air pressure, generates a combustion drives the piston downward force (De Caro & Berge, 2001, 565-574). Its principle is rooted in the gas compression engines mid and late nineteenth century, they used few volatile fuels, such as kerosene or oil lamps. How does it work? The diesel engine works through igniting the air and gas mixture without producing spark. The temperature that initiates the combustion releases from the increased pressure which take place in the second motor, i.e.
A split cycle engine is an IC engine that separates the four strokes of Intake, Compression, Power and Exhaust. These strokes separation is achieved by using two separate but paired cylinders of the Scuderi engine are named as the Compression Cylinder (i.e. First Cylinder) and the Power Cylinder (i.e. Second Cylinder). The sucked atmospheric air is compressed into the Compression Cylinder and then it is sent to the Power Cylinder.
The hybrid vehicle is common in the market. It helps reduce tailpipe emission by having two mixtures of engines: an internal combustion engine and an electric motor powered by an electric generator. When the speed of the vehicle is moving at a low rate, the electric motor will automatically engaged and will provide the horsepower to the vehicle so the internal combustion engine is not in use so tailpipe emission is at its minimum. The electric vehicle is also common. It gets energy from an electric grid.
While the gasoline powered cars contain a battery, this is not the main source of their power, but rather a source of power for the computer systems uploaded into it. An electric vehicle, needs this battery to drive. This means that the battery has to be larger, more capable, and must be able to store and process a lot more energy than the battery of a normal ICEV (Internal Combustion Engine Vehicle). In simple terms, this means that the battery has to be larger, which in turn means that more toxic gases are produced in this process, than in the manufacturing of the gasoline powered car’s smaller battery. In truth, “the EV requires a minimum lifetime 100,000 km (62,000 miles) to be competitive with ICEV in GHG footprint ”(Miret).
Nitromethane also increased combustion efficiency and improve cetane number. This makes nitromethane alternative source of energy. The aim of this study is to develop nitrogenated based diesel blend in diesel engine. It is an attempt has been made to assess the combustion, performance and emission characteristics of a CI engine fuelled with different Compression ratios. The experimental results are recorded, analyzed and compared with those of diesel operation and
Oxygenated fuel also help to cut down renewable fossil fuel consumption. . Requirements of good oxygenated properties- -Oxygenates that are to be blended with diesel fuel must have fuel properties appropriate for engine fuel. -Oxygenate must be miscible with various diesel fuels over the range of environmental temperature seen
In IC engines the combustion of the fuel produces heat, which is converted to mechanical work using the piston and crank arrangement. From the heat produced from combustion of fuel only 30% (approx) of heat is converted into useful mechanical work. The remaining heat energy is wasted into the atmosphere in the form of: (i) Heat carried away by the cooling water, (ii) Heat taken away by the exhaust gases, (iii) Heat carried away by the lubricating oil,
Combustion in aircraft engines is very complex as it depends on several factor: the engine’s aerodynamics, the design and materials of the engine, and the fuel used in the process. I am specifically interested in the aerodynamics/material aspect of a engine: the efficiency of a combustion based on the engine construction. Firstly, the initial design of an engine must be analyzed to determine the airflow behavior in its core as well as in its bypass region. The behavior will then be used to analyze the engine’s performance and efficiency enhancement possibility by redesigning the aerodynamics and combustion process. Additionally, a redesign of the existing engine’s construction may be proposed.
