Modular Instrumentation System For Real-Time Measurements And Control On Reciprocating Engines

An instrumentation system has been developed for reciprocating engines. Among the parameters measured are the indicated mean effective pressure, or theoretical work per cycle, and the mass fraction burn rate, a measure of the combustion rate in the cylinder. These computations are performed from mea...
