This is a laboratory course designed to provide a thorough understanding of basic diesel engines. Topics will include the study of current high-pressure diesel fuel-injection systems and the diesel engine combustion process with respect to fuel injection and combustion chamber design. Specific examination of design and performance characteristics of diesel engine air induction, scavenging supercharging and turbo-charging systems will be covered. Students will also analyze engine governing methods and devices necessary for control, as well as current methods and devices utilized in solving common diesel engine starting problems. Co-generation systems, including diesel, gas turbine, and steam will be examined. Related laboratory activities and experiments are included.
