Exhaust gas recirculation in medium speed gas engines

Abgasrückführung im mittelschnell laufenden Gasmotor


In the project presented in this article by WTZ Roßlau gGmbH, the impact of cooled exhaust gas recirculation was tested on a single-cylinder gas engine in lean mixture conditions. Special focus was on the basic engine parameters, such as thermal efficiency, brake mean effective pressure (BMEP), knocking behaviour and a reduction in the emission of unburned hydrocarbon (THC).
