Paper Abstract

The paper presents test stand designed for research of automotive combustion engines with gasoline injection systems. Authors used fiber-optic combustion sensor mounted in a spark plug and fiber-optic transmission. The sensor detects intensity signal which can be used as a feedback data by engine control system. Basic elements of the instrumentation and data processing software were presented as well as general ideas of the experiment. Data analysis was based on the comparison of the optical intensity signal with indicated pressure signal and other, well known engine parameters characterizing engine operation. Some results of the analysis are presented in the end part of the paper.
