Operating a gaseous fuel injector

Fuel injection accuracy of gaseous fuel injectors is important for efficient engine operation. However, the performance of the injectors varies from part to part and across their lifetime, and when an injector is under performing according to its specification it is often unknown what is causing the problem. An apparatus... Westport Power Inc

Ignition a premixed charge in a gaseous-fuelled engine

Premixed engines have ignition issues when engine speed and load are below a predetermined range. An ignition apparatus for igniting a premixed charge in a gaseous-fuelled internal combustion engine comprises an ignition device associated with a combustion chamber of the internal combustion engine. There is at least one of a... Westport Power Inc

Reducing unburned hydrocarbon emissions in gaseous fuelled lean-burn engines

It is a challenge to reduce unburned hydrocarbon emissions for gaseous fuelled engines, especially at low engine load conditions, to meet demanding emission regulation targets. A method for reducing unburned hydrocarbon emissions in a lean-burn internal combustion engine that is fuelled with a gaseous fuel comprises adjusting the timing for... Westport Power Inc

Hydraulically actuated gaseous fuel injector

Hydraulically actuated gaseous fuel injectors required a relatively small pressure bias between hydraulic fluid and gaseous fuel to be able to open and to reduce hydraulic fluid contamination of the gaseous fuel. An improved hydraulically actuated gaseous fuel injector includes an injection valve in fluid communication with a gaseous fuel... Westport Power Inc

Cryogenic pump operation for controlling heat exchanger discharge temperature

Gaseous fuel downstream of a heat exchanger can be too cold for fuel system components when the temperature of engine coolant employed as a working fluid in the heat exchanger is too low to elevate gaseous fuel temperature, and it is possible for the engine coolant to freeze. A method... Westport Power Inc

Apparatus for reducing pressure pulsations in a gaseous fuelled internal combustion engine

An improved body defining a restricted fluid flow passage in a fuel supply system for delivering a gaseous fuel to an internal combustion engine. The body is formed for installation between and fluidly connecting a gaseous fuel supply conduit and a gaseous fuel flow passage that defines a predetermined volume... Westport Power Inc

Sealing structure for gaseous fuel

In metal-on-metal sealing structures, the sealing criteria employed for high pressure liquid fuel does not work when sealing gaseous fuels. An improved method for sealing a gaseous fuel between gaseous fuel conduits in an internal combustion engine comprises forming a contact band between two surfaces of a sealing structure between... Westport Power Inc

Gaseous fuel vent handling apparatus and method

Venting of gaseous fuel during operation and after shutdown of an internal combustion engine increases emissions. A vent handling apparatus for a gaseous fuel system of an internal combustion engine comprises an accumulator for storing gaseous fuel; a first valve selectively enabling fluid communication between the accumulator and one of... Westport Power Inc

Piston arrangement

A piston arrangement comprises a circumferential piston groove that can accommodate a seal for sealing between the piston and the cylinder bore when the piston moves in a reciprocal movement. The piston arrangement comprises a first fluid flow passage, defined at least in part by the piston body that fluidly... Westport Power Inc

Gaseous fuel pumping system

In high horse power engines there are strict energy budgets allotted for each subsystem. It is a challenge for a gaseous fuel pumping system to supply the necessary gaseous fuel mass flow to the engine while staying within budget. A method for pressurizing a gaseous fuel supplied to an engine... Westport Power Inc

Method and supplying a gaseous fuel to an internal combustion engine

A method for supplying gaseous fuel from a tender car to an internal combustion engine on a locomotive comprising storing the gaseous fuel at a cryogenic temperature in a cryogenic storage tank on the tender car; pumping the gaseous fuel to a first pressure from the cryogenic storage tank; vaporizing... Westport Power Inc

Starting a gaseous and pilot fuelled engine

Starting a gaseous fuelled engine employing a pilot fuel at cold temperatures is challenging due to reduced ignitability and combustion efficiency of the fuel(s), and the increased viscosity of engine oil. A technique for starting a compression ignition, gaseous fuelled internal combustion engine employing a pilot fuel comprises determining one... Westport Power Inc

Piston seal assembly with controlled leakage

A piston seal assembly is disclosed comprising a seal and a seal energizer which supports the seal. The piston seal assembly comprises one component that is designed to position the seal energizer in a fixed axial position within the piston groove. In one embodiment, the seal energizer has the shape... Westport Power Inc

Method and system for operating gaseous-fuelled direct injection internal combustion engine

A method for operating a gaseous-fuelled internal combustion engine by directly injecting the gaseous fuel into the combustion chamber is disclosed wherein the gaseous fuel is injected at injection pressures higher than 300 bar and the pressure ratio between the gaseous fuel injection pressure and the peak cylinder pressure is... Westport Power Inc

Bracketed support for a double walled cryogenic storage vessel

Unconstrained rotational movement of an inner vessel with respect to an outer vessel at one end of a cryogenic storage vessel increases stress in supports at an opposite end. A storage vessel for holding a cryogenic fluid comprises an inner vessel defining a cryogen space and having a longitudinal axis,... Westport Power Inc

Cryogenic storage vessel

Draining a cryogenic storage vessel to remove a pump is timing consuming, expensive and can result in increased greenhouse gas emissions. A cryogenic storage vessel comprises an inner vessel defining a cryogen space and an outer vessel spaced apart from and surrounding the inner vessel, defining a thermally insulating space... Westport Power Inc

Piston seal

A piston seal for a reciprocating piston is disclosed having the shape of split ring comprising a first end segment and a second end segment overlapping along a split surface that extends from the inner circumferential surface to the outer circumferential surface of the seal and is transverse to the... Westport Power Inc

Gaseous fuel combustion an internal combustion engine

Diesel-cycle engines are known to have greater power, torque and efficiency compared to Otto-cycle engines of like displacement. When the fuel is a gaseous fuel, such as natural gas, a pilot fuel (such as diesel) is normally required to assist with ignition in a gaseous fuelled Diesel-cycle engine. It would... Westport Power Inc

Capacitance-type sensor probe

Sensor probes for capacitance-type liquid level sensors do not comprise an acceptable balance between cost, performance and durability for mobile applications. An improved sensor probe is provided. A first electrode comprises two or more first plate sections arranged in angular relationship with respect to each other. A second electrode comprises... Westport Power Inc
