Abstract
The AVGP GM6V53T engine was fitted with accelerometer and acoustic pick-ups and with an electronic injector system on cylinder #1. Precise injection control (+ or -O.1 degree CA) was established using the laboratory computer and data acquisition systems. Engine physical response studies were conducted with all three test fuels at six engine operating points. Studies directed at controlled injection timing revealed increase pressure rates and maximum cylinder pressures with earlier injection timing for all test fuels. However, indicated power calculations require a refined fuel measurement system. Further, by comparison with the experimental data, the model predictions were shown to have correct trending but did appear to overemphasize the effect of injection timing on both engine performance and on the combustion parameters.
