Abstract

Unburned hydrocarbon emissions and combustion instability are serious problems during cold starting in diesel en-gines. In this research, characteristics of injection quantity, injection rate and macroscopic spray development were investigated under various diesel fuel temperature. The experiments were carried out with a fuel injection equipment (FIE) system which was able to control fuel temperature between -30 oC to 40 oC. All of fuel lines and fuel delivery components were insulated to minimize heat loss. Macroscopic spray imaging was performed in a constant volume combustion chamber (CVCC) under simulated environment of a diesel engine. Despite of the same injection signal and duration, injection quantity showed decreasing tendency as the fuel temperature decreased. Injection rate meas-urement verified that start of injection was retarded and end of injection was advanced with lower fuel temperature condition. It also can be seen that the peak of injection rate was decreased as fuel temperature decreased. From mac-roscopic spray imaging, liquid penetration length with lower fuel temperature was longer than that with higher fuel temperature due to deteriorated atomization. Based on these results, the flow and spray characteristics under cold start condition were physically interpreted.
