In Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engines heat release occurs by auto-ignition and hence the fuel auto-ignition quality is very important. The auto-ignition quality of Diesel fuels is conventionally described by the cetane number. Conventional Diesel fuels are involatile compared to gasoline fuels and mixture preparation becomes far more critical in assessing their behaviour in HCCI engines. This paper considers the relationship between auto-ignition behaviour of Diesel-like fuels in a single-cylinder HCCI engine and the fuel cetane number under different mixture preparation strategies.
