  • PERFORMANCE OF DIESEL ENGINE USING DIESEL B3 MIXED WITH CRUDE PALM OIL
    Nattapong Namliwan, Tanakorn Wongwuttanasatian    Download Full Text

    The objective of this study was to test the performance of diesel engine using diesel B3 mixed with crude palm oil in ratios of 95 : 5, 90 : 10, and 85 : 15, respectively, and to compare the results with diesel B3. According to the tests, they showed that the physical properties of the mixed fuel in the ratio of 95 : 5 were closest to those of diesel B3. The performance of the diesel engine that u...

  • NONLINEAR OPTIMAL CONTROL OF CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION POWERTRAIN
    Reza Kazemi, Mohsen Rafat, Amir Reza noruzi    Download Full Text

    Optimization of gear ratio with the objectives of fuel consumption reduction and vehicle longitudinal performance improvement has been the subject of many studies for years. Finding a strategy for changing gears with specific control objectives, especially in the design of vehicles equipped with Continuously Variable Transition system (CVT), which has advantage of arbitrary selection of gear ra...

  • A POWER BUFFER IN AN ELECTRIC DRIVELINE: TWO BATTERIES ARE BETTER THAN ONE
    Juan de Santiago, Florian Burmeister, Johan Lundin, Janaina G Oliveira    Download Full Text

    Fuel cells and high energy density batteries have limited overrated capacity and slow power response. Ultracapacitors and flywheels are proposed to overcome these limitations and to facilitate regenerative braking in hybrid and electric vehicles. The simulations presented in this paper show that a Secondary Energy StorageUnit (SESU) enhances the performance of the drivelines as previously sugge...
