Optical diagnostics and combustion analysis in a gasoline direct injection engine

Abstract:

Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines work with stratified charge at part load and burn with lean mixtures in order to save fuel, whilst at full load, the fuel and air mix homogeneously for maximum power output. The higher compression ratio and the absence of throttling are two of the most significant benefits of GDI engines. The key issues facing GDI combustion include in-cylinder mixture preparation and post-combustion soot formation. This work was intended to investigate these aspect...
