THE EFFECTS OF EGR AND SPLIT FUEL INJECTION ON DIESEL ENGINE EMISSION
W. SCHREIBER, Z. GAO
University of Alabama
ABSTRACT
An important goal in diesel engine research is the development of a means to reduce the emission of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and soot particulate. A phenomenological model based on the multizone concept is used in the current paper to analyze and compare the effects of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and split fuel injection on emission from a compression-ignited, direct-injection engine. The present results show that NOx can be reduced with a minimum penalty of soot particle emission with cooled EGR. Compared with EGR, split fuel injection has a higher soot penalty at a given level of NOx reduction.
Key Words: Exhaust gas recirculation, Split fuel injection, diesel engine emission
