Title: Speed governor for diesel engine

Abstract

A speed governor was developed for the 12ChSN 18/20 ship diesel engine to reduce emission of fumes and eliminate transient overloads, with pneumatic correction of the fuel injection rate according to the supercharge pressure. The device includes an electric corrector, and a hydraulic amplifier with slide valve. It is found that the regulator improves the performance, including torque and combustion characteristics and reduces the emission level to 15% within 2 s and decreases only to a 65% level. It was also tested on a Kometa hydrofoil ship with regulation of the diesel start over an 80 to 90 s acceleration period independently of the crank turning time, and maintained overloads and fume emission within prescribed limits.

  • Six lubricants were evaluated for their effectiveness in controlling the deleterious effects of using high sulfur diesel fuel. Two of the lubricants gave significant improvement in the condition of some engine areas; however, none of the engine oils tested would allow the continuous use of high sulfur fuel with no penalty in engine condition as compared to the use of low sulfur fuel.
  • The film discusses three main assemblies of the governor and their functions. It also reviews the operation of the manual fuel control to explain the action of the governor through low, intermediate, and high speed ranges.
  • The effects of increasing the fuel sulfur content while using a constant lubricant (MIL-L-2104C) were determined. Key areas of engine distress were identified and baselines were established using high (1.0%w) and low (0.4%w) sulfur fuels. Effects of more frequent oil drain intervals were determined.
  • Medium-speed diesel engine testing of fuel-water emulsification with various grades of diesel fuel was conducted in order to determine the effect of water emulsification on engine performance. Emulsions from 0 to 12% water (by volume) were test run with various water particle sizes, injection timings, and engine loads with four separate fuels: Marine diesel, 1500 SR1, 3500 SR1, and 5000 SR1. Experimental results are presented for the basic engine performance areas for the various conditions run, focusing mainly on the effects of water emulsification on fuel consumption, exhaust emissions, and engine component wear rates. Details of the emulsification system aremore » also discussed.« less
  • The study was to investigate in-cylinder events of a direct injection-type diesel engine by using a new high-speed infrared (IR) digital imaging systems for obtaining information that was difficult to achieve by the conventional devices. For this, a new high-speed dual-spectra infrared digital imaging system was developed to simultaneously capture two geometrically identical (in respective spectral) sets of IR images having discrete digital information in a (64x64) matrix at rates as high as over 1,800 frames/sec each with exposure period as short as 20 micron sec. At the same time, a new advanced four-color W imaging system was constructed. Themore » first two sets of spectral data were the radiation from water vapor emission bands to compute the distributions of temperature and specie in the gaseous mixture and the remaining two sets of data were to find the instantaneous temperature distribution over the cylinder surface. More than eight reviewed publications have been produced to report many new findings including: Distributions of Water Vapor and Temperature in a Flame; End Gas Images Prior to Onset of Knock; Effect of MTBE on Diesel Combustion; Impact of Oxygen Enrichment on In-cylinder Reactions; Spectral IR Images of Spray Plume; Residual Gas Distribution; Preflame Reactions in Diesel Combustion; Preflame Reactions in the End Gas of an SI Engine; Postflame Oxidation; and Liquid Fuel Layers during Combustion in an SI Engine. In addition, some computational analysis of diesel combustion was performed using KIVA-II program in order to compare results from the prediction and the measurements made using the new IR imaging diagnostic tool.« less
