Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) is a promising low temperature combustion technology for reciprocating engines that offers high fuel efficiency and extremely low exhaust emissions. However, combustion control should be improved and operating range should be widened for the technology to achieve production level. In this study an overview of different direct gasoline injection control approaches, applied to improve stability at low engine loads and to reduce pressure rise rates at high load regime, is presented. The tests are performed on a single-cylinder research engine operated in a negative valve overlap (NVO) mode for residual gasses trapping. The investigated direct injection schemes included: (i) fuel injection during the NVO period to improve mixture reactivity and take an advantage of exhaust-fuel reactions thermal effects, (ii) fuel injection during intake stroke to create homogeneous charge and (iii) late fuel injection during compression stroke to create stratified charge. The results showed that application of early NVO injection enables active control of combustion timing at nearly idle conditions. The late fuel injection, during the compression stroke, enabled mitigation of excessive pressure rise rates at high engine load regime.
