The topic of investigation of this work was the influence of different gas qualities on the engine parameters and particularly on the air excess factor λ. For this research the normalized gases with extreme compositions were used.
At stationary operation there are no differences of the leaning capability of the different gases. The gas with the highest content of inert components causes the lowest full load power, the highest fuel consumption and the highest cyclic irregularity.
With the same air flow and the same injection duration for different gases result different air excess factors λ according to the density and to the necessary stoichiometric air quantity of each gas. This fact influences the λ at transient operation conditions as: cold starting, gas quality jump, or load increase, if there is no λ-control. With an active λ-control, which is today fast enough, especially with an adaptive system there are no problems with λ- differences.
