Challenge the Limits of Internal Combustion Enginee (Innovation in Diesel Engine Technologies)
Mr. Yuji Akagi
Mazda Motor Corporation, Japan
The idea of lowering a compression ratio as a means to gain high thermal efficiency while reducing soot by lean combustion and NOx by low-temperature has been pursued for some time. However, the idea could not be commercialized due to its essential problem with poor ignition performance under cold conditions. Through the development of SKYACTIV-D, Mazda solved the problem by employing new technologies for injection system, turbo-charging and valve train, and succeeded in adopting a low compression ratio (14.0).
Mazda also developed highly-responsive technology for idle stop and incorporated it into SKYACTIV-D. The feature of the technology is that the piston stop position in a cylinder can be accurately controlled at the time of idle stop and a rich mixture favorable for combustion can be produced at the time of engine restart.
With the two technologies above as pillars for getting new functions, Mazda was able to develop an innovative, highly-efficient and clean DE and introduce it to the market.
