In previous studies, multiple premixed compression ignition (MPCI) has been proposed as a novel combustion concept in gasoline compression ignition engines which has great potential to achieve high thermal efficiency and low emissions simultaneously. MPCI mode was realized by a sequence of “spray–combustion–spray–combustion” around the compression top dead center (TDC). This study is aimed for the high load expansion of naphtha MPCI. In addition, the study investigated advantages and disadvantages of MPCI compared with partially premixed compression ignition (PPCI) and conventional diesel combustion (CDC). Engine operating range successfully reached indicated mean effective pressure (IMEP) of 1.4 MPa with high thermal efficiency, low emissions and acceptable combustion noise by the optimization of the injection parameters and the intake management.

 

For MPCI, earlier combustion phasing was possible even at the high load operation compared with PPCI and CDC. This was attributed to the separated heat release characteristics and pressure rise rate process. The divided pressure rise rate process caused considerably low maximum pressure rise rate (MPRR) characteristics such as 0.8 MPa/deg at IMEP 1.4 MPa condition. The earlier combustion phasing led to the higher thermal efficiency characteristics of MPCI combustion compared with PPCI and CDC. This was attributed to the lower exhaust heat loss characteristics. However, high level of hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions with low combustion stability at the low load operation were considered as severe challenges to overcome.
