Hasegawa, T., Kuno, T., Kita, K., Kai, A. et al., "Technical Concepts on Non-Road Small Direct Injection Diesel Engines with Common Rail System," SAE Technical Paper 2012-32-0035, 2012, doi:10.4271/2012-32-0035.
In recent years, since the demands for comfortable operation and low fuel consumption are increasingly enhanced on the industrial machines, non-road engines as power sources on agriculture, landscape and construction applications are required to be achieved high power, low fuel consumption and low noise. Also, even for small engines, it is necessary to keep up with the trend of electronic control devices on these machines. Based on such backgrounds, we developed new non-road direct injection diesel engines with common rail system to satisfy those demands. This paper reviews the technologies to achieve the adoption of common rail system onto such small displacement industrial engines and to optimize the combustion system and injection characteristics.
