2 HYBRID ENGINE APPLICATIONS The internal combustion engine in general, especially for transport applications, is called upon to satisfy numerous key requirements during its operation under a variety of operating conditions, both steady and transient. Often, these would have the engine not confined to operate over a more limited set of operating conditions that would permit optimal performance, especially in relation to the desired torque ~ speed characteristics, enhanced efficiency, and reduced exhaust emissions.

4 DIESEL ENGINE FUELS The suitability of a fuel for diesel engine applications is evaluated through a number of properties in accordance with standard specifications. They include the cetane number, density, distillation characteristics, viscosity, heating value, flash, cloud 26 Dual-Fuel Diesel Engines and pour points, sulfur and nitrogen contents, carbon and ash residues, water and sediment contents, and overall composition. Most of these, which are defined and discussed in fuel standards such as those of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), have been briefly defined and listed within the glossary at the end of this book.

The rotary reciprocating engine that was commonly known as the Wankel engine has not shown, on the whole, the necessary promise needed for it to be a serious alternative to the common reciprocating type. Modern engine installations of recent design tend to be of complex construction and working. This has been mainly driven by the continuing need to increase their specific power output, efficiency, flexibility of operation, and control while continuing to reduce to a minimum their undesirable exhaust emissions.
