A STUDY OF EXHAUST AND NOISE EMISSIONS REDUCTION ON A SINGLE SPRAY DIRECT INJECTION DIESEL ENGINE

The paper describes tests in which the exhaust and noise emissions were successfully reduced using a Single Spray Direct Injection Diesel Engine (SSDI) on a two-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine. The compression ratio, the swirl ratio and the pumping rate were optimized to obtain good fuel economy, high power output and low exhaust emissions. Through a modification of the fuel injection equipment, hydrocarbon (HC) emissions were reduced. A test vehicle evaluation of this engine showed more than 11% fuel savings relative to Mazda two-liter Indirect Injection Diesel Engines (IDI). (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 865952.
