Mizokami, H., Nishi, M., and Iida, N., "An Investigation of the Effects of Fuel Concentration Inhomogeneity on HCCI Combustion -Fuel Concentration of Pre-Mixture Using LIF measurement-," SAE Technical Paper 2015-01-1788, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-01-1788.
HCCI (Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition) engine has a problem which causes knocking when the maximum PRR (Pressure Rise Rate) reaches a certain level because it takes the form of combustion of simultaneous multi-point ignition by compression of the air-fuel pre-mixture. This study focused on stratified charge of fuel in combustion chamber. This method disperses the timing of local ignition. The distribution of fuel concentration is measured by using LIF (Laser Induced Fluorescence). As a result, the maximum PRR is reduced by stratified charge of fuel. In addition, it is confirmed that the dispersion of combustion timing depends on the dispersion of fuel concentration.
