Abstract:
This paper describes the development of a natural gas engine with a prechamber. The comparison between a conventional gas engine and the engine with the prechamber is given. The testing results show that the new combustion system is reliable and practical. The performance of the engine, compared to the conventional gas engine, is greatly improved due to stable ignition and quick flame propagation in the prechamber and a high burning rate and short burning period in main chamber. The analyses of the combustion processes and lean combustion potential in the engine are further discussed.
