An LPG installation, similarly to other fuel supply systems, has its advantages and disadvantages. The primary advantages of this fuels system (mainly, the reduction of operation costs) are well-known among drivers. The disadvantages are not so notable among users, although they are equally or even more important. It has been observed that recently, the intensity of research on fourth generation gas installations has decreased, mainly due to the technological advances in vehicle design (mass…

Evaluation of impact of combustion engine controller adaptation process on level of exhaust gas emissions in gasoline and compressed natural gas supply process

Nowadays in many countries, where the conversion of internal combustion engines into alternative gas fuel is economically justified, the installation of CNG fuel systems dominates. According to

A Review of Compressed Air Engine in the Vehicle Propulsion System

Abstract Engines powered by compressed air as a source of propulsion are known for many years. Nevertheless, this type of drive is not commonly used. The main reason for not using commonly is the

Modelling of the Low-Pressure Gas Injector Operation

Abstract In recent years, there has been a growing interest in alternative sources of power supply for internal combustion engines. Liquefied petroleum gas injection systems are among the most

Determination of low pressure gas injector valve flow factor

During the time when exhaust toxicity effects have an important role in the means of transport, engines are very often converted to be supplied by alternative fuel. The most popular alternative fuels

Catalyst Conversion Rates Measurement on Engine Fueled with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Using Different Operating Temperatures

Further restrictions on the use of compression-ignition engines in transportation are prompting the search for adaptations to run on other fuels. One of the most popular alternative fuels is

Model assessment of inlet timing system impact on cylinder indicated pressure course of piston pneumatic engine

Continuous tightening of the exhaust gas toxicity standards emitted from transport means results in the necessity of the combustion process modification and search for alternative propulsion sources.
