ENGINES WITH VARIABLE GEOMETRY PRECOMBUSTION CHAMBER AND TWO STAGE TURBOCHARGING SYSTEMS
Research work done jointly with the Institut Francais du Petrole has led to the development and industrialization of a new type of pre-combustion chamber allowing specific fuel consumptions ranging at the same level as on direct injection engines while keeping the advantages of the standard pre-combustion chamber. The use of that particular pre-combustion chamber in a PA.4-200 engine originally designed for direct injection has allowed, at equal output, lowering of the maximum firing pressure from 140 to 95 bar.
