Résumé

A detailed modelling of energy conversion from solid fuel into gaseous fuel has been developed on the basis of experiments with several types of gas producers. It has been shown that an air - steam process including heat recovery leads to the highest gasification efficiency to the highest heating value of the gas. A thorough study of the burning properties of several types of producer gases on engines has shown that air - steam gas burned on the low compression ratio spark ignited engine leads to the same engine efficiency as air gas burned on the high compression ratio engine. Furthermore, a higher power output is delivered by the air - steam gas engine. In the same way, diesel gas engines are best fed at low compression ratio by an air - steam gas process to reach satisfying overall efficiencies.
