Influence of injection strategies on knock resistance and combustion characteristics in a DISI engine

The combustion of a direct injection spark ignition engine is significantly affected by the fuel injection strategy due to the impact this strategy has on the gas-mixture formation and the turbulence flow. However, comprehensive assessments on both knock and engine performances for different injection strategies are generally lacking. Therefore, the main objective of the present study is to provide an experimental evidence of how a single injection strategy and a split injection strategy compare in terms of both knock tendency and engine performances like thermal efficiency, torque and combustion stability. Starting from the optimization of a single injection strategy, a split injection strategy is then evaluated. Under the present operating conditions, an optimum secondary injection timing of 100 CAD BTDC is found to have significant improvements on both the knock resistance and the overall engine performances. It should be noted that the present results indicate that the relationship between double injection and anti-knock performance is not monotonous. In addition, the double injection shows superior potential in improving fuel economy and power performance in contrast with the single injection thanks to a more stable combustion when a late injection timing is applied.
