Reducing HC Emissions with Ethanol use in an Internal Combustion Engine
In this study, 1-D numerical analysis model of a spark ignition engine has been created. So, an engine test system
has been modeled with using analysis program. Results of the HC emissions analysis which has been used gasoline and
ethanol have been obtained for a total of five different engine speeds ranging from 1000 rpm to 5000 rpm with an increment
of 1000 rpm. Effects of both gasoline and ethanol on HC emissions of the spark ignition engine based on engine speed have
been revealed. Emission value also in terms of HC has been commented. Results of 1-D numerical analysis model have been
shown with graphics.
