Abstract
A NEW CONCEPT UTILIZING A COMPUTER CONTROL PULSE NETWORK TO DRIVE ATWO-PHASE FLOW DIESEL ENGINE TO ELECTRONICALLY CONTROL THE TIMING, ADVANCED ANGLE, PRESSURE, AND INJECTION DURATION, WHICH IS MECHANICALLY SIMPLE AND COMPACT. THE COMMERCIAL TYPE APPLICATION WILL BE TO ALL THE NEW GENERATION DIESEL ENGINES IN THE FUTURE. THE DIESEL CYCLE STARTED WITH INJECTING COAL POWDER, BUT UNTIL A MECHANICAL FUEL INJECTOR WAS INVENTED BY CUMMINS, IT WAS NOT A VIABLE COMMERCIALENGINE. THIS INVENTION MAY BE THE NEXT STEP IN ADVANCING DIESEL TECHNOLOGY. THE PROPOSED TECHNOLOGY DIRECTLY CONVERTS ELECTRIC ENERGY INTO PRESSURE PULSE OF SHORT DURATION WITHOUT MECHANICALLY MOVING PARTS.
