Work Package 2: Multi-Fuel Combustion


The objective is to develop the experimental and numerical tools required to exploit new alternative fuels in future marine engines. In order to operate efficiently on a larger variety of fuels an increased understanding of injection, ignition, combustion and emissions formation of those novel or mixed fuels is required. For this purpose we propose to develop experimental facilities with optical access for tests under conditions relevant to low- and medium-speed engines. For furthering understanding of ignition and emission formation numerical tools will also be developed and applied. Finally, novel engine control strategies will be developed to fully exploit potential benefits of such fuels. The objectives in this work package are base for further improvement of fuel flexibility of marine engines.
