Diesel - injection for small engines and low emissions

Objective

The introduction of the Common Rail fuel injection technology for Dr Diesel engines after 1997, resulted in an improvement of specific torque, combustion noise and emission levels. Significant improvements can be achieved by further development of the injection system and atomizer nozzle in terms of advanced injection strategies for accurate fuel metering and distribution. Moreover, these developments should be particularly beneficial for smaller displacement engines (between 0.5 and 0.3 l/cyl.), in terms of enhancing performance and achieving ultra-low emission levels. Therefore, the concept of a highly compact diesel engine, has become an increasingly interesting prospect, particularly in Europe where small cars are foreseen to represent an increasing share of the passenger car market.
