RESEARCH INTO THE REDUCTION OF NITRIC OXIDES IN HIGH-SPEED DIESEL ENGINES

Research was carried out at Motoren-und Turbinen-Union (West Germany) to determine the extent to which nitric oxide emissions from high-speed diesel engines could be reduced by internal engine modifications. By using a modified injection system and appropriately adapted turbocharging, it was possible to reduce nitric oxides by more than 50% for 1500 rpm, subject, however, to associated increases in fuel consumption of up to 6%. These nitric oxide reductions were achieved with no loss of engine power and with simultaneous reductions in mechanical and thermal stress.
