ENERGY CONSERVATION WITH INCREASED COMPRESSION RATIO AND ELECTRONIC KNOCK CONTROL

This paper discusses the application of an electronic closed loop knock control system to a higher compression ratio engine to allow operation on 91 Research Octane Number fuel. Two cars with different compression ratios are compared with both oxidizing converter - EGR and 3-way oxidizing-reducing converter-EGR closed loop carburetor emission control systems.
