Experimental Investigations of Various Modes of Charging on HCCI Engine

Abstract

Homogeneous Charged Compression Ignition technology is most favourable or suitable for Internal Combustion engines for reducing the exhaust emissions and enhances the Thermal efficiency, improve the fuel consumption, and increase the rate of combustion. This article represents the various charging methods on HCCI technology engine; it improves the engine performance and determines the emission characteristics of HCCI technology engine. The homogeneous mixture prepared with different methods. In–cylinder internal homogeneous mixture preparation method applied in this present work. It reduces the exhaust emissions released from the combustion chamber. However, oxides of nitrogen and soot emissions are significantly reduce, because combustion starts at lower temperatures and various points in combustion chamber.

The HCCI technology generates small amount of exhaust emissions and it improves the performance of the engine. In addition, performance and released emissions depends on the quality and quantity of homogeneous mixture.
