A digital simulation of a conventional diesel fuel injection system was developed. The influence of such factors as wave propagation phenomena, pipe friction, and cavitation are included. The computer results are compared with transient pressures as measured on an actual fuel injection system operated on a test bench. The comparisions show the accuracy and validity of this simulation scheme. Analytical control methods were developed to help determine two design means by which after-injection may be controlled. These release the injection system excess elastic energy in a controlled manner. One design involves the modification of the pump spill port. Pressures and flow are not significantly altered during the main injection period. The ability of the system to control after-injection is confirmed by use of a simulation program and with experimental data.
