Abstract

Comparisons are made of the efficiency and emission levels of a multicylinder automobile engine operating at part load on hydrogen and methanol. Hydrogen has a higher brake thermal efficiency. At very light loads, however, the efficiencies are the same with the presently used Hydrogen Induction TEchnique method of load control. An improved method of load control is discussed. Nitric oxide emissions from the hydrogen engine are lower than that from the methanol engine.
