1 Fuel Requirements for HCCI Engine Operation Tom Ryan Andrew Matheaus Southwest Research Institute 1

2 HCCI Fuel & Air Charge Undergoes Compression Spontaneous Reaction Throughout Cylinder Low Temperature and Fast Reaction Gives Low NO x 2

3 Fundamentals of HCCI Reaction 1 Ideally, a Homogeneous Fuel-Air Mixture is One in Which the Composition and the Thermodynamic Conditions are Uniform Throughout the Reaction Phase Reaction Starts When the Thermodynamic Conditions are Sufficient to Initiate Chain Branching Reactions Reaction Rates and Reaction Duration are Kinetically Controlled 3

4 Fundamentals of HCCI Reaction 2 Practical Fuel-Air Mixtures Have Both Compositional and Thermodynamic In-Homogeneities Reaction Begins in the Fuel Richest and the Highest Temperature Locations Reaction Rates and Reaction Duration are Affected by Mixing and Heat Transfer 4

5 Port Injection Configuration Air-Assist Pressure- Swirl Injector Timed to Valve Opening Liquid Drops Acceptable Evaporation During Compression 5

6 HCCI Development Problems SOR Control No SOR Property Defined Mixture Preparation Total Evaporation Before the Start of Reaction 6

7 Typical HCCI Engine Heat Release Heat Release Rate (BTU/ ) Main Heat Release Inital Heat Release Ignition Delay Crank Angle ( ) 7

8 Start of Reaction Effects of Compression Temperature History Crank Angle ( ) Various Intake Temperatures and EGR In All Cases SOR is Very Near 650 K 8

9 Mixture Preparation Effects of Intake Temperature Bosch BSN Smoke Number Diesel, CR=14 20% Blend CR=14 40% Blend CR=14 60% Blend CR=14 80% Blend CR= Intake Air Temperature Temp. (C) (C) Slight BSN Advantage With Blends Critical Temp. For These Conditions 150C Naphtha & Gasoline Had Zero BSN for All Conditions 9

10 SOR and Mixture Preparation Effects of Intake Temperature Intake Manifold Temp. (C) Start Of Reaction (CAD) Diesel, 14 CR 20%, 14 CR 40%, 14 CR 60%, 14 CR 80%, 14 CR Gasoline, 16 CR Naphtha, 14 CR Naphtha, 16 CR All Fuels Advanced SOR Compared to Diesel Naphtha Operates at Lower Intake Temp. 10

11 HCCI Rules Fuel Related All Fuel Must Be Evaporated Prior to the Start of Reaction Liquid Fuel Drops Burn As Diffusion Flames With High NOx and PM Fuels Must Have Start of Reaction Temperatures and Ignition Delay Times (Ignition Characteristics) Such That Reaction Begins at TDC 11

12 Fuel-Blending with Two Fueling Systems Upstream mixing of natural gas Air-assisted port injection of F-T naphtha This engine s fuel system accommodates one gaseous fuel and one liquid fuel 12

13 Choice of Fuels Used Natural Gas used because: This engine was already equipped with fuel system engine can still be operated at full load on spark-ignited natural gas fueling Natural gas has low reactivity (high-octane number) F-T naphtha used because: It is sufficiently volatile for use with port injection Its auto-ignition characteristics work with this compression ratio Other fuels can be used with this engine concept with slight modifications 13

14 Combustion Phasing Control Through Fuel-Blending High reactivity (low-octane) fuel Intake Air Low reactivity (high-octane) fuel Exhaust More reactive mixture advances combustion Less reactive mixture retards combustion Premise for this approach: By altering the propensity of the air-fuel mixture to autoignite, it is possible to control the combustion phasing 14

15 Single-Fuel HCCI Heat Release Rate (Arbitrary Units) Multi-Cylinder Engine on F-T Naphtha Increasing F-T Naphtha Amount Crank Angle Degrees 1000 RPM (approx.) 97 kpa MAP Inceasing F-T Naphtha No Natural Gas Varying the amount of F-T naphtha changes the combustion phasing (when no gas is used) This is the typical problem experienced with HCCI combustion of a single fuel Typical HCCI combustion phasing advance with increasing load and vice-versa 15

16 Fuel-Blending Approach Heat Release Rate (Arbitrary Units) Mutli-Cylinder Engine on F-TNaphtha and Natural Gas 1000 RPM (approx.) 97 kpa MAP Constant Amount of F-T Naphtha Increasing Natural Gas 0 No Natural Gas Crank Angle Degrees Increasing Natural Gas Amount Dual-fuel HCCI combustion phasing is not affected by low-reactivity fuel (natural gas) amount 16

17 Start of Reaction Effects of Compression Temperature History Crank Angle ( ) Various Intake Temperatures and EGR In All Cases SOR is Very Near 650 K 17
