This ebook includes the lawsuits of the overseas Symposium on substitute and complicated car Engines, held in Vancouver, B.C., on August eleven and 12, 1986. The symposium was once subsidized through EXPO 86 and The collage of British Columbia, and was once a part of the really good sessions application of EXPO 86, the 1986 world's reasonable held in Vancouver. a few eighty attendees have been drawn from eleven nations, representing the educational, vehicle purpose and big engine groups. the aim of the symposium was once to supply a serious evaluate of the main choices to the inner combustion engine. The scope of the symposium used to be restricted to attention of combustion engines, in order that electrical energy, for instance, was once no longer thought of. This was once now not a reflec tion at the attainable contribution which electrical propulsion may perhaps make sooner or later, yet fairly an try to concentration the court cases extra sharply than if all attainable propulsion platforms were thought of. during this manner the entire individuals have been capable of perform the occasionally full of life dialogue classes following the presentation of every paper.

Running between these two extremes, very close to the stoichiometric ratio, and diluting the cylinder charge with EGR was the path selected. The traditional carburetor could not hold the air-fuel ratio sufficiently close to the stoichiometric value under all driving conditions, however. This led to the now standard approach of closed-loop control of air-fuel ratio with an on-board computer receiving its signal from an oxygen sensor in the exhaust. Once the computer is on board, it can be used for many other control functions.
