Title: Diesel engine fuel injection system with a rate-of-injection control arrangement

Abstract

A fuel injection system for a diesel engine is described comprising: (a) a fuel injection pump for delivering a controlled quantity of high pressure fuel cyclically at a timing synchronized with the operation of the engine; (b) a fuel injection nozzle hydraulically connected to the injection pump for receiving high pressure fuel therefrom and injecting the fuel into an engine cylinder; (c) means for controlling a rate of injection of the system in response to operating conditions of the engine; and (d) passage means for providing, during each delivery stroke of the pump plunger, fluid communication between the pumping chamber and the variable volume chamber only for a predetermined initial phase of the delivery stroke. The variable volume chamber is hydraulically isolated from the pumping chamber during subsequent phases of the delivery stroke.

  • A fuel injection timing control system for a diesel engine has a fuel injection pump supplying fuel to the engine periodically according to the rotation of the engine crankshaft, and a device connected to the fuel injection pump to vary the fuel injection timing in terms of crank angle. The engine is equipped with an exhaust gas recirculation arrangement. A control unit is connected to the device and the arrangement to drive them in such a manner that when the arrangement is operative to effect the exhaust gas recirculation, the fuel injection timing is advanced compared to that under themore » condition where the exhaust gas recirculation arrangement is at rest suspending the exhaust gas recirculation.« less
  • A fuel evaporation rate control system is described for a direct fuel injection type spark ignition internal combustion engine including a cylinder, a piston reciprocally movable in the cylinder, a concave wall portion located in the top of the piston to define a combustion chamber. The wall portion has a front surface facing the inside of the piston. Means directly inject fuel into the combustion chamber onto the front surface of the combustion chamber wall such that the fuel adhering onto the combustion chamber wall is evaporated by heat from the wall to generate a combustible mixture gas. The systemmore » comprises: an oil path for supplying oil to the engine; and a nozzle means connected to the oil path for spraying a cooling oil jet onto the back surface of the combustion chamber wall so as to control the combustion chamber wall temperature for limiting the evaporation rate of the fuel adhering onto the front surface of the combustion chamber wall. The wall has a heat insulating structure and the nozzle means are located below the piston.« less
  • A fuel injection rate control system is described for an engine, comprising: (a) means for injecting fuel into the engine; (b) movable means for adjustably determining a rate of fuel injection into the engine, the fuel injection rate depending on the position of the movable means; (c) means for detecting a critical position of the movable means defining a boundary between first and second ranges of the position of the movable means, fuel injection being performed in the first range and being disabled in the second range; (d) means for sensing an operating condition of the engine; and (e) meansmore » for controlling the movable means on the basis of the sensed engine operating condition and the detected critical position.« less
  • A quadrangular combustion cavity V in the crown of a diesel engine piston is offset from the center thereof, and the position of the fuel injector nozzle is also offset relative to the center of the cavity to accommodate enlarged intake and exhaust valves. The rotational orientation of the nozzle and cavity are geometrically determined such that: (a) the fuel distance J/sub 1/, J/sub 2/ and J/sub 3/, J/sub 4/ are equal, (b) the angles between a line A connecting the geometric center C/sub 1/ of the cavity and the center C/sub 2/ of the nozzle, and fuel jet directionsmore » J/sub 1/ and J/sub 2/ are equal, as are the angles between line A and fuel jet directions J/sub 3/ and J/sub 4/, and (c) the difference between the maximum jet distances J/sub 1/ and the minimum jet distance J/sub 3/ is minimized. The distances from the four fuel impingement points Z/sub 1/-Z/sub 4/ on the side walls of the cavity to the respective corners of the cavity are also equal.« less
  • A fuel injection apparatus is described comprising: (a) retarding means for, in a low range of engine loading, substantially retarding fuel injection timing by diminishing the advancing rate of the injection timing advancing means lower than a predetermined advancing rate for a high range of engine loading; (b) varying means for, in the low range of engine loading, continuously varying the advancing rate of the injection timing advancing means between the diminished advancing rate and a mostly advanced rate higher than the predetermined advancing rate of the injection timing advancing means; (c) pressure sensitive means for forcing the varying meansmore » to effect continuous variation of the advancing rate of the injection timing advancing means in accordance with atmospheric pressure; (d) first advancing rate varying means for, in the high range of engine loading, maintaining the advancing rate of the injection timing advancing means substantially at the predetermined advancing rate, and (e) second advancing rate varying means for, in the range of engine loading between the low and high ranges of engine loading.« less
