Abstract

The effects of a standard ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel and a new, ultra-clean synthetic gas-to-liquid (GTL) fuel on the performance, combustion, and emissions of a single cylinder, direct injection, and diesel engine were studied under different operating conditions with addition of simulated reformer product gas, referred to as reformed EGR (REGR). GTL fuel led to a higher brake thermal efficiency compared to ULSD but the differences depended on the engine condition and EGR/REGR level and composition. The combustion pattern was significantly modified when the REGR level was increased. An optimal combination of GTL and REGR significantly improved NOx and smoke emissions. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (Montreal, Quebec, Canada 8/23-27/2009).
