Development And Performance Analysis Of An Advanced Combustion Control System On Fuel-Admitted High-Speed Natural Gas Engine
Given the drive for simultaneous reductions in both engine exhaust emissions and brake-specific fuel consumption, the operation of fuel-admitted, high-speed natural gas engines increasingly demands the application of enhanced combustion control technologies. Doing so allows for engine lines with significant and long-term service in gas compression and power generation to be modernized and operated in an environmentally responsible and cost-effective fashion. This paper provides an overview of the joint development of a suite of technologies aimed at delivering on both goals inclusive of the application of advanced fuel delivery/ignition systems and strategies and other engine-related modifications. Documented engine and emissions performance results are reviewed with the goal of providing a comprehensive understanding of the current and future impact of these technologies in meeting both the emissions and efficiency performance targets.
