Abstract

This research methodology has been explained step-by-step and in detail for the simulation and experimental investigation of compressed natural gas engine performance. The engine simulation model was developed to investigate engine performance based on computational simulations. The engine computational simulation model has been using one dimensional model. The experiment investigation was conducted based on ISO 3046. The experiment has been using eddy current dynamometer engine test bed. The simulation and experiment was performed to investigate engine performance parameters such as intake pressure and temperature, cylinder pressure and temperature, torque, power, break mean effective power, specific fuel consumption and exhaust pressure and temperature.
