EXPERIMENTAL AND ANALYTICAL STUDIES OF HYDROGEN AS A FUEL IN COMPRESSION IGNITION ENGINES

This paper presents some of the findings of an investigation into the performance of a compression ignition engine when fueled with hydrogen. Most of the experimental work reported was carried out in a laboratory dual fuel engine where hydrogen was introduced just outside the engine cylinder, mixed with the necessary air, compressed and then ignited by the injection of a small quantity of liquid fuel near the end of compression. Moreover, the role of various operating parameters on the onset of auto ignition in a motored engine in the absence of a deliberate source of ignition was also established analytically. Comparison with experimental observations is also included.
