Abstract

In the current study cold start tests have been
performed on a multi-cylinder, spray guided direct
injection, spark ignition engine. The direct injection system
was a centrally mounted dual fluid type injecting fuel and
air simultaneously. The engine has been started on ethanol
at soaked temperatures from +25˚C through to -10˚C.
Development of engine hardware, software and calibration
was undertaken to optimise cold start times, whilst quality
metrics were used to evaluate the performance of the starts.
Consideration has been taken to restrict hardware options to
production viable components. Conclusions are drawn regarding the start performance of an E100 spray guide DI
engine at low temperatures.
