  1. 1. Spark Ignition Combustion of Direct Injected Alternative Fuels

    Author : Lars Christian Riis Johansen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spark ignition; optical diagnostics; internal combustion engine; stratified combustion;

    Abstract : Several technologies and modifications exist to increase the fuel efficiency of passenger vehicles in general and spark ignition engines in particular. Combining a spark ignition engine with an electric drive system in hybrid powertrain and thermodynamic cycle improvements are two such approaches with the potential to greatly reduce fuel consumption.

  2. 2. Optical Diagnostics Applied to Internal Combustion Engines: Catalysis, Sprays and Combustion

    Author : Stina Hemdal; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ; sprays; Optical diagnostics; engines; combustion; spray-guided; SGDI; Direct-injection; catalys;

    Abstract : Gasoline direct injection with spray-guided charge formation is one of the most promising concepts to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of spark ignited engines. The advantages with the system are owing to un-throttled operation and stratification of the injected fuel resulting in a globally lean combustion. READ MORE

  3. 3. Alternative Combustion Strategies for Gasoline Engines

    Author : Daniel Dahl; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; engines; SI; SGDI; CAI; HCCI; Otto; lean burn; gasoline; combustion; fuel consumption;

    Abstract : Due to increasingly strict legislative demands and customer concerns regarding CO2emissions, there is a need to develop and implement new combustion strategies forgasoline (Otto) engines. In attempts to meet this need, most attention is focusing onthe low load/speed range where the classic spark ignition strategy (SI) has poorefficiency, mainly due to the throttling of the intake air causing pumping losses.

  4. 4. Chemistry of Combustion Products Investigation of Combustion Chamber Deposits Formed in a Gasoline Direct Injection Stratified Charge SI Engine

    Author : Farshid Owrang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : gasoline fuels; SI engine; gasoline direct injection; stratified charge; combustion chamber deposits; engine oil; oxidation; in situ measurement; thermal desorption; GC MS; fast neutron activation analysis; spin-lattice relaxation constant; NMR;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to characterize deposits formed in the combustion chambers of a gasoline direct injection stratified charge SI engine. The engine was run with several types of gasoline fuels and a special reference engine oil. READ MORE

  5. 5. Injection and Combustion of Alternative Fuels in Spark Ignited Direct Injection Engines

    Author : Lars Christian Riis Johansen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; gas fuel; direct injection; E85; stratified combustion; spark ignition; alternative fuels; optical measurements;

    Abstract : Increasingly stringent vehicle emission legislation necessitates increasingly efficient combustion engines. The use of direct injection in spark ignited engines improves engine efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions. READ MORE
