Ganesh S Warkhade; Ganesh Babu Katam; Veeresh Babu Alur

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2023, , Pages 183-198


  This paper analyses the VCR (variable compression ratio) engine's performance, combustion, and emission output responses. The experimental results were modelled using the Grey Taguchi method (GTM) for input parameters of compression ratio, load, and fuel blends. The objective is to find the optimal combination ...  Read More
