Abstract: The invention relates to a continuous steam generator provided, in a duct for hot gas circulating in a substantially horizontal direction, with a continuous heating surface of an evaporator comprising a plurality of steam generator tubes which are mounted in parallel for circulating a fluid flow. The inventive device requires exceptionally low construction expenditures and ensures a high degree of safety and a high efficiency. For this purpose, the continuous heating surface of the evaporator is characterized in that it comprises a segment of the heating surface through which a moving fluid flows in an opposite direction with respect to the heated gas direction is positioned in such a way that a saturated steam temperature which is adjusted during operation at the exit from the continuous heating surface deviates from the predetermined maximum value of the temperature of the gas prevailing during operation at the outlet of the segment of the heating surface. In addition, one or several entry collectors are disposed at a close distance from the outlet of the heating surface on the gas side in such a way that the moving fluid has a flow speed in the downpipe which is higher than the minimum speed required for pulling nascent steam bubbles. The invention relates to a continuous steam generator provided, in a duct for hot gas circulating in a substantially horizontal direction, with a continuous heating surface of an evaporator comprising a plurality of steam generator tubes which are mounted in parallel for ...more ...less

Abstract: Method and system embody a valve timing strategy to control the autoignition timing of a four stroke internal combustion engine (10) operated in an HCCI mode at different engine operating conditions such as different engine speed and torque. A particular valve timing strategy varies lift timing of the intake valve (20) relative to the exhaust valve (28), or vice versa, and relative to top dead center in response to a change in engine torque, for example, to vary amount of trapped residual burned gas in the combustion chamber (12) flowing to an intake or exhaust port (16,18) and back to the combustion chamber during which the residual gas is cooled. Control of the flow of residual gas between the combustion chamber and intake or exhaust port and thus its temperature by the valve timing strategy, in turn, is used to control the temperature of the fresh air/residual gas/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber (12) and thus autoignition timing in response to a change in engine torque.

Abstract: The invention relates to a method for operating an internal combustion engine comprising a fuel pressure accumulator, in order to provide fuel at a nominal pressure, pressure in a fuel pressure accumulator being generated by means of a high-pressure pump. According to said method, the high-pressure pump is supplied with a fuel flow via a volume flow control valve. In a first operating mode, the pressure in the fuel pressure accumulator is set to the nominal pressure, by regulating the fuel flow of the fuel delivered to the high-pressure pump by means of the volume flow regulating valve. In a second operating mode, the pressure in the fuel pressure accumulator is set to the nominal pressure, i.e. more specifically, the pressure in the fuel pressure accumulator is reduced to the nominal pressure. The invention relates to a method for operating an internal combustion engine comprising a fuel pressure accumulator, in order to provide fuel at a nominal pressure, pressure in a fuel pressure accumulator being generated by means of a high-pressure pump.

Abstract: An auxiliary device for sparkplug ignition is provided having a case, and provided therein, electrolytic capacitors C1 to C4 connected in parallel between ground terminals GND 1 to GND 4 and positive terminals (V1 to V4) of primary coils L1 to L4 of ignition coils K1 to K4, which are connected to sparkplugs P1 to P4 in a direct ignition system. Diodes D1 to D4, which are connected in parallel, are provided in the reverse direction, between the ground terminals GND 1 to GND 4 and the positive terminals on the primary coils L1 to L4. The case is fitted with a connector that connects to a dedicated harness. The back electromotive force generated in the primary side coils L1 to L4 of the ignition coils of each sparkplug is absorbed, so as to adjust the primary side current, allowing for generation of stabilized high voltage on the secondary coil side, and producing highly efficient sparkplug ignition.
