Abstract:

Kinetic BEI intends to design an electronically controlled, common rail, heavy fuel injection system suitable for application on engines in the 5-20 Hp range. The system will feature a Micro Fuel Injector and Micro Pump that are currently under development. This Phase I STTR will focus on developing the complete heavy fuel injection system, complete with an electronic controller. It will also facilitate development of higher pressure micro injectors and pumps, and fund the exploration of piezo actuation for better injector performance. This additional research and development effort will ultimately increase the odds of success, and speed up the timeline for application of this technology on current and future small engine development programs. The opportunity to expand the research and development of this miniature/micro fuel injection system through a Phase I STTR program will have far-reaching implications in both the military and commercial engine development programs.
