LEAN-BURN ENGINE - POTENTIAL ANALYSIS
A. KOWALEWICZ
Technical University of Fadom
ABSTRACT
Analysis of the thermodynamic cycle of IC engine from the point of view of economy and emissions was carried out. From this analysis potential capability of engine development was derived. This potential capability is lean-burn engine, fuelled with homogeneous mixture with λ≥1.4. Several different modes of fuelling were proposed and tested on one-cylinder test engine from the point of view of extending lean operation limit of the engine, emissions and fuel economy. Among them were: fuelling with evaporated preheated gasoline, with gas (LPG evaporated) and with liquid butane. From these modes, fuelling with liquid butane injected to inlet port was selected and finally tested. This novel system of fuelling offered better than standard engine performance and emissions at lean operation limit. These results were validated on full-scale two-cylinder engine.
Key Words: Lean operating limit, Performances, Emissions, Combustion, LPG
