Experimental study of the influence of pressure oscillations in common rail injector on fuel injection rate

The article presents the results of various factors influence experimental research on pressure oscillations at the injector inlet in case of single and double injections of different fuels. With this, such factors as fuel pressure, injection rate value, interval between injections, physical properties of fuel and design features of the injector were taken into account. The aim of the research: to evaluate the influence of pressure oscillations caused by the preliminary injection of fuel to the main injection. Analysis of the experimental data obtained is useful for selection of main design solutions for Common Rail Injectors (CRI).
