A new engine indicating measurement procedure for combustion heat release analysis
Applied Thermal Engineering. Pergamon-elsevier Science Ltd, v. 29, n. 41890, n. 1657, n. 1675, 2009.
This paper presents a new arrangement for the indicating measurement system utilized in the study of internal combustion engines. In this experimental configuration, the current polarized by a piezoelectric pressure transducer is converted into an analog signal proportional to the cylinder pressure variation rate, which constitutes the primary information for combustion heat release analysis. The proposed technique reduces the uncertainty in the pressure derivative data, providing more accurate heat release results than those obtained with the traditional transducer signal conditioning procedure, which requires the numerical derivation of in-cylinder pressure data supplied by a charge amplifier.
