Abstract:

Small diesel gensets (less than 5 kW) used by the military are often sized for maximum loads, but are run usually run at only partial load. This leads to poor fuel economy, wet-stacking, and the reliability problems associated with it. Aspen Products Group, Inc. proposes to eliminate the problem of wet-stacking by co-firing the diesel engine with a hydrogen-rich syngas to facilitate complete fuel combustion. The syngas will be generated by an onboard reformer add-on that feeds directly into the air intake of the engine.
