Abstract

Partially Premixed Combustion (PPC) has proven to combine low NOx and soot emissions with high indicated efficiencies, while still retaining control over combustion phasing through the injection event. Previous research has
shown that the operating region where the PPC concept can be successfully implemented is largely linked to the octane number (ON) of the fuel. Five fuels were chosen: n-heptane/iso-octane mixture (PRF70), n-heptane/ iso-octane/ethanol mixture (ERF70), and n-heptane/ iso-octane/ n-butanol mixture (BRF70), all with a research octane number (RON ) of 70, n-heptane and diesel. Experiments were conducted on a direct injection diesel engine with these fuels to investigate the sensitivity of research octane number (RON) on combustion and emission characteristics in low temperature combustion mode and diesel conventional combustion mode from low load (6bar IMEPg) to high load (16bar IMEPg). Furthermore, the load range applicability of RON70 fuels in PPC is further investigated.
