Common Rail Diesel Fuel Injection


August 14, 2019 Troy, MI SAE International Classroom Seminar

The improved efficiencies of the modern diesel engine have led to its increased use within the mobility industry. The vast majority of these diesel engines employ a high-pressure common rail fuel injection system to increase the engine's fuel-saving potential, emissions reduction, and overall performance. This one-day seminar will begin with a review of the basic principles of diesel engines and fuel injection systems. Diesel and alternative fuels will be discussed, followed by current and emerging diesel engine applications. The majority of the day will be dedicated to the common rail system itself, beginning with a comprehensive overview of the complete system. The instructor will then introduce the main subsystems, including hydraulics and controls. Finally, the subsystems will then be broken-down into their respective components.
