Title:
REDUCED DIESEL FUEL CONSUMPTION USING MONATOMIC OXYGEN
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/204924
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
One approach to providing atomic oxygen for the purpose of promoting more rapid and compact combustion is to disperse a low concentration of an atomic oxygen precursor, such as nitrous oxide (N2O), into the compressed air in the cylinder before or close to the time of ignition. The introduction of N2O may take place in the intake manifold, directly into the combustion chamber through a small orifice in the base of the fuel injector or a small nozzle located elsewhere in the cylinder head, or the N2O can be added as a solute to the injected fuel.
