Lean Combustion Book Description :

Lean Combustion: Technology and Control, Second Edition outlines and explains the latest advances in lean combustion technology and systems. Combustion under sufficiently fuel-lean conditions can have the desirable attributes of high efficiency and low emissions. The book offers readers both the fundamentals and latest developments in how lean burn (broadly defined) can increase fuel economy and decrease emissions, while still achieving desired power output and performance. This volume brings together research and design of lean combustion systems across the technology spectrum in order to explore the state-of-the-art in lean combustion. Readers will learn about advances in the understanding of ultra-lean fuel mixtures and how new types of burners and approaches to managing heat flow can reduce problems often found with lean combustion (such as slow, difficult ignition and frequent flame extinction). This book offers abundant references and examples of real-world applications. New to this edition are significantly revised chapters on IC engines and stability/oscillations, and new case studies and examples. Written by a team of experts, this contributed reference book aims to teach its reader to maximize efficiency and minimize both economic and environmental costs. Presents a comprehensive collection of lean burn technology across potential applications, allowing readers to compare and contrast similarities and differences Provides an extensive update on IC engines including compression ignition (diesel), spark ignition, and homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) Includes an extensive revision to the Stability/Oscillations chapter Includes use of alternative fuels such as biogas and hydrogen for relevant technologies Covers new developments in lean combustion using high levels of pre-heat and heat recirculating burners, as well as the active control of lean combustion instabilities

Flashback Mechanisms in Lean Premixed Gas Turbine Combustion Book Description :

Blending fuels with hydrogen offers the potential to reduce NOx and CO2 emissions in gas turbines, but doing so introduces potential new problems such as flashback. Flashback can lead to thermal overload and destruction of hardware in the turbine engine, with potentially expensive consequences. The little research on flashback that is available is fragmented. Flashback Mechanisms in Lean Premixed Gas Turbine Combustion by Ali Cemal Benim will address not only the overall issue of the flashback phenomenon, but also the issue of fragmented and incomplete research. Presents a coherent review of flame flashback (a classic problem in premixed combustion) and its connection with the growing trend of popularity of more-efficient hydrogen-blend fuels Begins with a brief review of industrial gas turbine combustion technology Covers current environmental and economic motivations for replacing natural gas with hydrogen-blend fuels

Cleaner Combustion Book Description :

This volume provides unique views of combustion from many technical and international research perspectives. Combustion science is often considered from its negative environmental impact, where we find, instead, that energy release from fuels of all kinds have promoted human endeavor throughout history. This volume tries to capture some of these positive features by showing a range of work examining unusual fuels and controlling the pollution from them.

A Review of Prechamber Ignition Systems as Lean Combustion Technology for SI Engines Book Description :

Highlights: Concepts about homogeneous and stratified prechamber ignition systems are presented. Summary is provided for the main works concerning the prechamber ignition systems. Influence on combustion and emissions characteristics are discussed. Key advantages and challenges in prechamber ignition technology application are identified. Abstract: Use of lean or ultra-lean air-fuel ratios is an efficient and proven strategy to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Previous works indicate that lean burn mixtures improves engine thermal efficiency by improving combustion quality, reducing heat transfer losses and increasing the possibility of apply higher compression ratios. However, lower fuel concentration in cylinder hinders mixture ignition, requiring greater energy to start combustion. To favor the ignition process, several high energy providers methods have been studied. Between them, prechamber ignition system presents potential reductions in emission levels and fuel consumption, operating with lean burn mixtures and expressive combustion stability. In this paper, a literature review has been made about prechamber ignition systems as lean combustion technology, focusing in the several investigations regarding combustion and emissions characteristics and presenting the key advantages and challenges in prechamber ignition technology application. From this review can be observed that the pre-chamber ignition system is an important way to increase thermal efficiency, reduce fuel consumption and emissions in spark ignition engines.

Physics of Turbulent Jet Ignition Book Description :

This book focuses on developing strategies for ultra-lean combustion of natural gas and hydrogen, and contributes to the research on extending the lean flammability limit of hydrogen and air using a hot supersonic jet. The author addresses experimental methods, data analysis techniques, and results throughout each chapter and: Explains the fundamental mechanisms behind turbulent hot jet ignition using non-dimensional analysis Explores ignition characteristics by impinging hot jet and multiple jets in relation to better controllability and lean combustion Explores how different instability modes interact with the acoustic modes of the combustion chamber. This book provides a potential answer to some of the issues that arise from lean engine operation, such as poor ignition, engine misfire, cycle-to-cycle variability, combustion instability, reduction in efficiency, and an increase in unburned hydrocarbon emissions. This thesis was submitted to and approved by Purdue University.
