Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a dual fuel engine combustion technology called Reactivity Controlled Compression Ignition (RCCI) is highlighted, since it provides more efficient control over the combustion process and has the capability to lower fuel use and pollutant emissions.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the effect of reducing Jatropha oil's viscosity by increasing the fuel temperature (using waste heat of the exhaust gases) and thereby eliminating its effect on combustion and emission characteristics of the engine was investigated.

TL;DR: An algorithm which chooses the power split between the motor and the engine in order to minimize the fuel consumption is presented and results show that a 17.5% of fuel reduction can be achieved for the CEN speed cycle.
Abstract: Hybrid vehicles use at least two energy sources for their propelling. Usually an electric motor is used with an IC engine. Hybrid vehicles are expected to be less polluting and to have a lower fuel consumption than conventional vehicles. This paper presents an algorithm which chooses the power split between the motor and the engine in order to minimize the fuel consumption. First of all, the prototype built at the LAMIH is presented, then the equivalent consumption minimization strategy is described. First results show that a 17.5% of fuel reduction can be achieved for the CEN speed cycle.
