NOx forms during a combustion process and contributes to ozone, smog, acid rain, eutrophic soil, etc. The use of water to prevent NOx formation during the combustion process is well known. Adding water to the combustion process reduces the flame temperature by increasing the specific heat capacity of charge air. Moisturizing a charge air is one of the most effective methods to add water to the combustion process. In this study, the characteristics of charge air moisturizing method were evaluated on cylinder pressure, heat release rate, exhaust gas temperature, specific fuel oil consumption, NOx reduction rate, etc., using the medium speed diesel engine with a single cylinder.
