ANALYTICAL MEASUREMENTS OF COMBUSTION GAS TEMPERATURE IN THE TORCH IGNITED ENGINE

Measurement of the combustion gas temperature in the combustion chamber of the engine is one of the most effective ways to analyze the characteristics of the torch ignited engine. The authors adopt the sodium line reversal method to measure the combustion gas temperature of a torch ignited engine and a conventional one. Results show that the maximum gas temperatures of the torch ignited engine are higher than had been thought, in spite of the lower NOX emission from the torch ignited engine (compared with the conventional one). This is due to the characteristics of stratified charge combustion. Results also show that the combustion gas temperatures of the torch ignited engine is highest in the prechamber, followed by the main chamber position (a), and the main chamber position (b) under normal operating conditions. /Author/TRRL/
