Homogeneous charged compression ignition (HCCI) is a promising combustion mode for internal combustion (IC) engines. HCCI engines have very low NOx and soot emission and low fuel consumption compared to traditional engines. The aim of this thesis is divided into two main parts: (1) engine instrumentation with a step towards converting a gasoline turbocharged direct injection (GTDI) engine to an HCCI engine; and (2) developing controller for adjusting the crank angle at 50% mass fuel burn (CA50), exhaust gas temperature Texh, and indicated mean effective pressure (IMEP) of a single cylinder Ricardo HCCI engine.

The base GTDI engine ...
