The influence of split-injection on engine performance is studied using system and in-cylinder simulation of a two-stroke medium speed diesel engine. System level models for the engine and fuel system and a multi-dimension CFD model for the combustion chamber were developed and calibrated with experimental data. Calibration of these models from the available test data is discussed and calibration results are presented. The SFC and NOx predictions show good sensitivity to injection timing variation. These calibrated models were then used to simulate split injection through the modification of the fuel injector. Split injection achieved through this modification results in fuel savings while maintaining same NOx levels.
