Combustion Characteristics of Microwave Plasma Combustion Engine
Published May 21, 2008 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Event: JSAE Spring Meeting
Prototype of microwave plasma combustion was applied to a single-cylinder test engine. The improvement of lean limit and reduction of combustion fluctuation were demonstrated. In the case of 2000 rpm and IMEP 275 kPa, lean limit was improved from A/F 19.3 to 24.1. Fuel consumption was reduced without change of exhaust gas emission by microwave plasma combustion.
