Abstract

Two stroke spark ignition engines have high exhaust emissions and low brake thermal efficiency due to incomplete combustion, which occur during idling and at part load operating conditions. An effort is been made to improve the engine parameters i.e. specific fuel consumption and Thermal Efficiency of the engine and reduction in exhaust emission. This is achieved three basic methods, designing the combustion chamber to achieve an efficient combustion, optimizing operating parameters, i.e. equivalence ratio, spark timing etc. to reduce pollutant emissions and Using after treatment devices in the exhaust system (catalytic converters etc.) Many researchers had found the effect of dual and triple spark plug on engine performance & exhaust emission. This study is aim to find the effect of four spark plug on performance and exhaust emission of two stroke single cylinder spark ignition engine with gasoline fuel. Various performance & exhaust emissions test were carried out on engine with load using four spark plugs. It indicates that brake thermal, indicated thermal, mechanical efficiency increase as compared to using single spark plug. Also it shows significant reduction in HC and CO emission which indicates increase in combustion efficiency.
