Transient Performance Development on Dissociated Methanol Fueled Passenger Car

Annotation ability available
A dissociated methanol fueled passenger car has been developed which shows improved transient driving and exhaust emission performance. In order to improve the transient performance, a mountable engine control unit, a new exhaust dissociator and a dissociated methanol flow control valve were developed among others and examined.
The new exhaust dissociator has a extended heat transfer surface area and double injector to improve transient response and heat exchange efficiency. The dissociated methanol flow control valve which is controlled by intake manifold pressure works as a compensator for delayed dissociated methanol at transient driving. The high thermal efficiency and low exhaust emission level was observed for the transient driving as well as steady state driving.
