The Homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine combines characteristics of both conventional gasoline and diesel engines. This is a form of internal combustion engine in which well-mixed fuel and oxidizer are compressed to the point of auto-ignition.
HCCI Engines – The Future Of Internal Combustion Engines!
As in the other internal combustion engines, HCCI also injects fuel during the intake stroke. However, instead of using an electric spark or fuel injector for ignition, HCCI raises density and temperature by compression until the entire mixture reacts spontaneously.
