(3) Assume data if required.
(4) Figures to the right indicate full marks.

Attempt any five:

1 (a) Compare abnormal combustion in SI and CI engines. (4 marks)

1 (b) Sketch and explain actual port timing diagram for two stroke engines. (4 marks)

1 (c) Give the reasons of black, blue and white colored smokes from exhaust of diesel engines. (4 marks)

1 (d) Explain the effects of spark advancement and retardation on the engine performance. (4 marks)

1 (e) Explain why turbo charged engines may have inferior values of power output and fuel consumption than naturally aspirated engines especially at low speed. (4 marks)

1 (f) What are the components (at least four) of general diesel fuel injection system? State in brief function of each of them. (4 marks)

2 (a) Describe the requirements for spark plug. (8 marks)

2 (b) During test on a diesel engine the power developed by the engine is used for driving a DC generator with output of 210 ampere at 200 volt. The efficiency of generator is 82%. The fuel of 42600 kJ/kg calorific value is supplied to the engine 11.2 kg/hr. The air fuel ratio was 18:1. The exhaust gases were passed through a exhaust gas calorimeter for which the observations were as follows:
Water circulated through at 580 liters/hr Temperature rise of water through calorimeter is equal to 36&dec;C. Temperature of exhaust gases at exit from calorific is 98°C. Ambient temperature is 20°C.
Heat lost to jacket cooling water is 32% of the total heat supplied. If the specific heat of exhaust gases be 1.05 kJ/kg K, draw up the heat balance sheet on minute basis.

3 (a) With neat sketch explain various types of fuel nozzles used in CI engine injection system. (10 marks)

3 (b) A perfect gas at 1 bar and 290 K undergoes ideal diesel cycles. The maximum pressure of the cycles is 50 bar. The volume at the beginning of compression is 1m3 and after constant pressure heating is 0.1m3. Determine the temperature at all salient pressure point of the cycles and also find out the efficiency of the cycle. Take v=1.4 for the gas. (10 marks)

4 (a) Compare air and water cooling systems. (8 marks)

4 (b) A closed type injector has a nozzle orifice diameter of 0.9mm and maximum cross sectional area of passage between needle cone and the seat is 1.75 mm2. Coefficient of discharge for the orifice is 0.85 and for the passage is 0.8. The injection pressure is 175 bar and the average pressure of charge during injection is 25bar, when the needle cone is fully lifted up. Calculate the volume rate of flow per second of fuel through the injector and the velocity of jet at that instant. Take density of fuel equal to 850 kg/m3. (12 marks)
