Diesel Dual Fuel, DDF, is a concept which promises the possibility to utilize CNG/biogas in a compression ignition engine maintaining a high compression ratio, made possible by the high knock resistance of methane, and the resulting benefits in thermal efficiency associated with diesel combustion.
A series of tests has been carried out on a single-cylinder lab engine, equipped with a modern common rail injection system supplying the diesel fuel and two gas injectors, placed in the intake runners. One feature of port-injected Dual Fuel is that full diesel functionality is maintained, which is of great importance when bringing the dual fuel technology to market. The objective of the study was to characterize and investigate the potential for dual fuel combustion utilizing all degrees of freedom available in a modern diesel engine.
Increased diesel pilot proved efficient at reducing NOx emissions at low λ. Advanced combustion phasing has the potential to extend the lean limit for operation. Stoichiometric operation using high levels of EGR is identified as a promising field in conjunction with raised inlet temperature.
