shutdown inputs, vibration monitoring and fuel/air ratio.
According to researcher Takunori Taira, the lasers are able to ignite an engine three times faster than spark plugs, and because the beams can be focused precisely at the center of the fuel/air mixture, there is more-efficient combustion.
It is expected that the alternative is likely to involve using laser beams to ignite the fuel/air mixture inside the engine.
Automotive repair technicians can instantly check the temperature of ignition systems, fuel/air adjustments, engines, coolant sensors, radiators, brakes, and tires, thus realizing significant savings in diagnostic time.
If the porcelain is cracked, the current can exit to ground and will not ignite the fuel/air mixture.
Direct injection enables precise control of the fuel/air mixture so that engines can be tuned for improved power and fuel economy, but ongoing research challenges remain in improving the technology for commercial applications.
Scuderi says its design is able to achieve compression cylinder pressures equal to that of a conventional internal-combustion engine during the combustion cycle, thus creating large amounts of turbulence for improved atomization of the fuel/air mix.
Because the fuel/air delivery occurs after the exhaust ports are closed, and the entire mixture is ignited and burned, DFI technology produces dramatic reductions in both fuel consumption and emissions.
