Impact of Late and Early Fuel Injection on Main Engine Efficiency and Exhaust Gas Emissions

Exhaust gas emissions from ships are an aspect of the global maritime industry which has been given great importance in recent years. Increasing the efficiency of maritime transport regarding fuel consumption and exhaust gas emissions is an ongoing effort which requires a detailed analysis of all ship systems that have an effect on the aforementioned issue. One aspect that can be analyzed in this regard are the various machinery faults which influence the ships exploitation efficiency. This paper will focus on the analysis of the two stroke slow speed diesel main engine with early and late fuel injection faults. This analysis is based on a set of data acquired from a simulation model of a LCC tanker vessel including fuel consumption and emission pollutants such as carbon monoxide (CO), sulphur oxides (SOX) and carbon dioxide (CO2) as a greenhouse gas with early and late fuel injection fault introduced to different number of main engine cylinders. This methodology of research has the advantage of analyzing various scenarios which are not as easily reproduced on actual vessels.
