Diesel generator set diesel engine working principle
- Jun 18, 2018 -

The basic working principle of a diesel engine is that diesel fuel is rapidly injected into a cylinder to form a high-temperature, high-pressure gas, which drives the piston to move downwards and drives the crankshaft through a connecting rod to publicize. This converts thermal energy into mechanical energy.


To make the diesel engine work continuously, when the piston moves up and down in the cylinder or in the cylinder, it must be able to perform four processes of air intake, contraction, work and exhaust. The four processes together are called the working cycle of a diesel engine. A diesel engine with a working cycle completed in four strokes of the piston ship (crankshaft conversion) is called four-stroke diesel.
