From the Back Cover
Upon a synthesis of the technology of Combustion in Piston Engines, its past, present and future, the book provides a recipe for its advancement. Engines of the future are visualized as featuring distributed combustion (vid. photograph on the front cover) executed by means of PJI&I (Pulse Jet Injection and Ignition) actuators, modulated by MECC (Micro-Electronically Controlled Combustion) systems in response to signals provided by pressure sensors. To assist in the development of such engines, the book provides the method of pressure diagnostics – an analytical technique for interpreting the signal provided by a pressure sensor to assess the effectiveness with which fuel is utilized in an engine cylinder, and to monitor the operation of MECC in optimizing the performance of a PJI&I system. It is on this basis that a demonstration is produced of a representative car engine, for which, by the use of these systems, the formation of pollutants can be reduced by orders of magnitude, while the consumption of fuel is halved.
