WP1 update

The single-cylinder engine in the Motorlab at NTNU is now operational with direct injection of ammonia and biodiesel. The diesel fuel system has been upgraded, improving the reliability and stability of the injection pressure. The GDI injection has been synchronized to the engine encoder, offering full control of injection timing with high precision. Initial tests […]

Current developments in WP3

The research team in WP3, lead by LOGE Polska Sp. z o.o. has been recently dealing with Numerical investigations of diesel/ammonia and biodiesel/ammonia dual-fuel operation in compression ignition engine using 3D CFD and 0D SRM. The visual effects are presented in the picture below:

Getting closer to direct injection (WP2)

SUT Team keeps working hard in the lab despite the sweltering heat in Gliwice, Poland. We are approaching ammonia combustion with direct injection. In the last few days, we managed to perform tests using the external Electronic Control Unit successfully and now we can report progress in the ammonia engine control.
