The company has received the honour for its SKYACTIV-X compression-ignition engine
, a part of the automaker's forward-looking Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030 plan.
A diesel engine (also known as a compression-ignition engine
) is an internal combustion engine that uses the heat of compression to initiate ignition to burn the fuel, which is injected into the combustion chamber.
Diesel hydrogen dual-fuel combustion has been reported to yield decreases in all of these emissions, when compared to operation of the compression-ignition engine
burning diesel fuel alone.
These are followed by the combustion turbine (9.30 quads), which is primarily for power generation and transportation (aviation), and the compression-ignition engine
(6.78 quads), which is primarily for transportation but also has some uses in power generation.
In Chapter 10, Rolt refers to the seldom-acknowledged fact that the progenitor of the modern high-speed compression-ignition engine
was Herbert Akroyd Stuart's 'solid injection' machine: Akroyd Stuart's patents preceded those of Rudolph Diesel and his 'blast injection' engine by several years.
And Hinds acknowledges that going forward, this architecture will be the base of more engines because compared with diesel technology, it provides performance advantages at a manufacturing price point that provides a faster payback, while providing not only fuel efficiency, but the kind of torque that one might associate with a compression-ignition engine
. Or a bigger engine.
German engineer who gave his name to the compression-ignition engine
The University of Wisconsin-Madison won first place by reengineering a 2002 Ford Explorer with a compression-ignition engine
and advanced catalyst system capable of super ultra-low emission vehicle (SULEV) level emissions.
