Abstract
A thermodynamic and combustion model was developed for a two-stroke, turbocharged, compression ignition engine. The model was fit to the AVGP-GM6V53T engine through direct correlation with experimental data. Intercooling was seen as the single most promising parameter for improving engine performance and could be coupled with increased mass of fuel injected and/or tuned injection timing. Also, of the standard engine variables, injection timing was seen to be the most attractive approach for controlling the high pressure rates associated with the low-cetane fuels, however, losses in thermal efficiency also result. On the other hand, it was predicted that an optimized dual injection (pilot plus main) could reduce the pressure rates of Fuels 3 and 4 to the level of Fuel 1 without any appreciable loss in engine thermal efficiencey or rated engine power.
