Study of Effect of Gaseous Fuels with Different Carbon Numbers on Autoignition Properties

Internal combustion engines have been required to achieve even higher thermal efficiency and cleaner exhaust emissions in recent years in order to comply with increasingly tighter environmental regulations every year owing to global warming and other environmental issues. Another factor involved here is that global energy demands have prompted a quest for alternatives to liquid fuels such as gasoline, diesel fuel and other petroleum-derived fuels. Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engines, featuring higher compression ratios and uniform, lean combustion, are a promising technology for improving the efficiency and reducing the emissions of internal combustion engines. However, it is difficult to control the ignition timing of HCCI engines[1],[2] because they lack any physical means of controlling ignition.
