Development Project of Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine System for Heavy-Duty Vehicles

Event: JSAE Spring Conference
A development project for a hydrogen internal combustion engine (ICE) system for heavy-duty vehicles supporting Japanese freightage has been promoted as a candidate for use in future vehicles that meet ultra-low emission and anti-global warming targets. In the project, high-pressure hydrogen gas direct injectors were developed. And new combustion method peculiar to the hydrogen which balanced low NOx with the high output was developed. Finally, the target power and ultra-low emissions which meet the JAPAN 2009 emissions regulation by the transient emission testing mode (JE05) were confirmed in a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder hydrogen engine which applied the injectors.
