A STUDY OF THE EFFECT OF OIL AND COLLANT TEMPERATURES ON DIESEL BRAKE SPECIFIC FUEL CONSUMPTION

Diesel engine fuel consumption is mainly a function of engine component design and power requirements. However, fuel consumption can also be affected by the environment in which the engine operates. This paper considers two controlling parameters of the engine's thermal environment, oil temperature and collant temperature. The effects of oil and collant temperatures on Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) are established for a turbocharged diesel engine. Data are also presented for a direct injection, naturally aspirated diesel engine. /SASI/
