EcoBoost from Ford

The system of the Ford EcoBoost.  EcoBoost system is a kind of symbiosis of turbocharging and direct fuel injection. Ford, exhausting all possible modern trends in the engine, such as hybrid or diesel, has chosen the path that at this stage of development is the key. Engineers have created a cylinder block of aluminum, while decreasing the size of the engine, adding direct injection of fuel into the combustion chamber.But most importantly, the new EcoBoost engine lineup received turbocharger, which allowed a relatively small volume of the engine to give a fairly decent power. With innovative engineering solutions from Ford managed to reduce fuel consumption by 20%, and respectively for the same percentage decrease in the number of exhausts SO2.V modern trends, cost, prices on carbohydrates, it is a significant advantage of the motors. So, how does the engine EcoBoost:EcoBoost

The first distinctive point of this type of engine is that it is made of aluminum. Why is aluminum, ask a question, it also automatically increases the cost of the car. Aluminum for its metallurgical properties itself soft metal, but the reaction with oxygen, it forms aluminum oxide, but this compound has a superalloy. As I have previously pointed out on this type of turbocharged engines is used, so that’s working pressure fuel pump 2200 psi (150 bar), which is fifty times higher than the rate for conventional engines.

To create a classic layout engine of metals, namely, ductile cast iron, had to be heavier construction that would affect other characteristics of the vehicle. The high pressure pump is a mechanical plunger pump with cam drive, just the work of the unit controls the electronic valve. Its function is to control the amount of fuel supplied to the fuel rail to the injectors.The second version, is that the engines in the EcoBoost system uses dual independent variable valve timing-Ti-VCT.EcoBoost

EcoBoostThis system allows for precise variable valve timing of the intake and exhaust camshafts, which are independently from each other are changing the opening and closing of valves. This gives a fuel saving of up to 4%, due to pumping losses. Another advantage of the system Ti-VCT, a wider range of the torque curve.Due to the fact that the system Ti-VCT allows you to close the inlet valve is a little ahead, there is the instantaneous power at low engine speeds, there is some effect on the bi-turbo diesel engines. A high-speed, engine intake valves closing cam shaft made with a delay to allow the cylinder to convey a greater amount EcoBoost

EcoBoostof air, which gives rise to a 10% power compared with engines without the system Ti-VCT.Third different, is a system supplying fuel directly into the combustion chamber. Each nozzle has six channels of fuel that allows to divide the flow into smaller pieces. By optimizing the cone and spray angle of fuel and air is produced improved air-fuel mixture, which allows almost all the fuel burn through during the stroke, which affected the increase in power and a decrease in exhaust emissions.Thanks to direct injection, fuel evaporates and cools the air in the cylinder, which allowed for this type of engine to increase the compression ratio. Increased compression reduces detonation combustion moreover decreases the fuel consumption.On the turbo, which spins at 200,000 rpm, the manufacturer gives a guarantee of 10 years or 240 thousand miles., Which is quite not bad.EcoBoost
