The Diesel engine has evolved from the very first one made in the 1800 's. They are one of the main sources of transportation in the world, will explain the history of the compression engine in the first paragraph and the 3rd because there is so much history on a Diesel engine. The 4th paragraph explains how the power of the compression engine has evolved from the 1800 's to now, will tell you how the fuel is made and also how the advancement of diesel fuel has bettered the diesel engine. The turbo was invented and was put in the first diesel in 1938; this is also how we got the term turbo diesel. The turbo gave the engine more horsepower for the first diesel invented and they have bettered the engines performance. The last paragraph will…show more content…
The first Diesel ever produced was made by a man named Rudolf Diesel which was built in the 1800’s. He opened up his own shop in Paris to begin the development of the diesel engine in 1985. The first engine made was not called a Diesel; it was called a compression engine because of the way the fuel was ignited, which is by compression. In a gasser there are spark plugs that light the fuel but in a diesel there are injectors instead of spark plugs and therefore the compression of the piston ignites the fuel. 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…show more content…
How has power made the diesel engine better? When Rudolf Diesel produced the compression engine it had no power to do anything. The engine had around 20Hp because it was one cylindered, also 4 stroke, was water cooled, also was air injected fuel. For an engine that was so tall and big it had no power. There was a lot of fuel being used to power it and keep it running. There was a trouble in his engine and had to be worked on and tested for a very long time. He also had to get together with other people in his quest to make the best engine out there for the people that believed in him. Now that technology and other things have been invented there have been a very big change in the diesel industry and there had been so many new things that have been produced. Now the diesel that we produced straight from the factory has 440 hp and that 's a 6.7 Ford Power stoke, the 6.7 Dodge Cummins has 385 hp and this is all from the factory production line. The reason that fuel also has made the diesel engine and the diesel production better is because there has been so many things that the world has invented to make less fuel miles and also can make you go through more fuel or less fuel. Diesel fuel is a bi produced of gas. The primary use of diesel fuel is in diesel engines. The invention of the diesel engine is credited to Rudolph Diesel, who filed the first diesel engine patent in 1892. His use of peanut oil (rather than a petroleum product) to fuel an engine--demonstrated at the 1889
