Abstract:

A Fuel Engine Evaluation System FEES has been designed to evaluate the effects of changes in fuel composition on engine performance and operability. This report describes FEES and the tests carried out to calibrate the system and to determine its reliability. From the results obtained recommendations are made to improve the system. FEES was designed to handle spark ignition and compression ignition research engines of power output up to 22 kW at 3500 RPM. Cold start capability testing to -40 C is also available. The engine used for the above tests was a Sachs, single rotor KM914A rotary combustion, spark ignition engine.
