Pilot Injection Strategies for Medium-speed Dual-fuel Engines
- 60 Downloads
The dual-fuel engine concept is one possible approach to minimize the air pollutants but to keep high efficiencies at the same time. As a part of the project LEDF concepts, which was realized at the University of Rostock, experimental investigations of the boundary conditions of the dual-fuel combustion process regarding fuel injection, mixture formation and the ignition behavior had been carried out at a medium-speed single-cylinder research engine.
