Experimental research of a four-stroke piston type compressed air engine
School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Wuhan University of Technology, Wuhan, China
The purpose of this paper is to investigate working performance for a four-stroke piston type compressed air engine (CAE) via experimental research. A conventional internal combustion engine(IC engine) is modified to a four-stroke CAE and a mathematical model is set up. Working performances are investigated by output torque, power, air consumption, exhaust pressure, exhaust temperature and cylinder pressure on a test bench. The CAE is installed on a vehicle for the road test. The experiment and analysis show several meaningful results. The increase of the supply pressure will result in the increase of the rotational speed, and it can effectively improve the output torque and power. However, it can lead to an increase in air consumption. The success of this application demonstrates compressed air cars are likely to be industrialized duo to their zero pollution and zero emissions.
