Compression Ratio Of IC Engine in Simple Words

Compression Ratio Of IC Engine in Simple Words. This is the main topic of today's post. Here, you will learn about the compression ratio of different combustion engines. I will cover important points like, what is compression ratio in automobiles ? Why do petrol and diesel have different compression ratios? All such types of questions are simplified in this article. So, let's dive in.  What is Compression Ratio in Automobile? It is the ratio between the volume of the cylinder when the piston is at BDC to the volume of the cylinder when the piston is at TDC. This is known as the compression ratio in automobiles. TDC and BDC are the top and bottom positions of cylinders where the piston moves up and down . The full form of TDC is Top Dead Center and BDC is Bottom Dead Center . Here, the cylinder is referred to as the combustion chamber of the petrol or diesel engine. Have a look at the image - there you will easily understand that 10 grams of the air-fuel mixture are bei

Does EGR system Decreases Engine Power? (Must Know)

You will be shocked to know that the EGR system in automobiles decreases the volumetric efficiency as well as power output.  Yes, you heard it right. Then, you must be thinking. why are we using EGR? What it actually does? Does it do any other thing to the engine? All these doubts and topics are covered in this article. Let's get started. Little Intro to EGR EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation System . It is part of em mission control system in an automobile vehicle. It has zero roles in increasing engine power. It is used in vehicles to stop the formation of NOx gas. Which are very harmful to nature. Generally, when a vehicle runs on the road it produces lots of smoke and pollutants like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and the most dangerous one i.e. oxides of nitrogen . Formation of NOx Fas Inside Engines Cylinder It is essential to know how and when NOx is formed inside an engine's combustion chamber. Nitrogen and oxygen are already present in the air. In order t

Need For Flywheel In An Automobile Engine. (Must Know it)

Flywheel - A heavy steel wheel attached to the engine's crankshaft to store energy and is responsible for delivering smooth power from the engine.  Welcome to autoblogly, here is everything you need to know about the ic engine's flywheel . A flywheel is the rotating component of the engine. It is found in diesel as well as petrol/gasoline engines. Apart from the automobile industry , flywheels can be found in many places like generators and other moving devices when energy storage is required. Flywheel In An Automobile Engine The flywheel is fitted back side of the engine. It is designed round in shape and gears are cut on the edge of the flywheel.  The main purpose of cutting a gear-like structure is so that the starter motor can be geared with a flywheel which helps in getting the engine started. At first, the starter motor starts rotating the flywheel, and the flywheel connected to the crankshaft begins rotating. This rotation of crankshaft crates to and fro the

EGR SCR In Automobile Vehicle (Simplified)

Exhaust Gas Recirculation System EGR system I.e. exhaust gas recirculation system is one of the processes of controlling pollution emitted from automobiles . What is EGR? The full form of EGR is an exhaust gas recirculation system. It reduces the formation of NOx gas from the combustion chamber. This is the main purpose of EGR . The oxides of nitrogen are harmful to our environment so, in order to control it, a system is introduced in bs4 model vehicles. How does EGR work? The working of EGR is simple and clear to understand. As the name suggests, exhaust gas recirculation, means exhaust gases are recirculated and sent back to the intake manifold of the engine. Only 6 to 10% of exhaust gases are sent to the combustion chamber via the intake manifold.  Between the intake manifold and exhaust manifold, an EGR valve is fitted. Which allows the exhaust gas to enter the intake manifold. The EGR valve is automatically controlled by ECU (engine control unit). An EGR
