1-D Modelling Comparative Study to Evaluate Performance and Emissions of a Spark Ignition Engine Fuelled with Gasoline and LNG
Kırıkkale University, Faculty of Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, 71450 Kırıkkale, Turkey
In this study, a spark-ignition engine fuelled with gasoline and LNG was modelled in 1-D at wide open throttle by using Ricardo-Wave software. Different engine speeds ranging from 1500rpm to 4500rpm with an increment of 500rpm were studied to evaluate the effects of gasoline and LNG on engine performance and exhaust emissions. It is determined that LNG decreases engine performance and emissions as well, at especially high speeds.
