AT last a serious attempt to deal with the deaths and illnesses attributable to pollution from internal combustion engines in our city.
The move comes more than a century after the invention of the internal combustion engine and paves the way for a new chapter in automotive history.
* The University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, MD, utilizes a CHP system that includes a 2 MW natural gas-fired internal combustion engine and a 350-ton absorption chiller.
Currently, there are many scholars who utilised the cyclic Wiener filtering method [5], blind source separation method [6-8], improved spectrofilter method [9], speed-varying filter [10], and other multichannel methods to separate and identify the noise sources of the internal combustion engine.
The internal combustion engine can also be fully replaced by an electric engine.
The electrification of transport will not increase power demand by the same amounts, however, as EVs are some three times more energy efficient than vehicles with internal combustion engines. The increase in electricity demand would therefore be a third of the decrease in crude oil demand, meaning the additional demand of power generation capacity in the reference case is 11GW by 2020, 93GW by 2030 and 378GW by 2040.
More than 120 contributors from science and technology update this comprehensive reference on all aspects of internal combustion engines. Among the topics are defining and classifying reciprocating piston engines, fundamentals of thermodynamics, engine components, mixture formation and related systems, electronics and mechanics for engine and shift control transmission management, cooling internal combustion engines, combustion diagnostics: indication and visualization in combustion development, alternative vehicle drives and auxiliary power units, and energy management in the engine and vehicle.
Energy storage-to-torque on an EV platform is above 90 percent efficient, compared to less than 35 percent for internal combustion engines. I have no doubt that battery-powered race cars will be attracting race fans in the immediate future," he said.
