    Abstract: A next-generation algorithm to calculate the PKI methane number is reported. The algorithm is suitable for a wide range of fuel compositions encountered in natural gas pipelines, including admixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide from renewable sources. Comparison with measurements of knock in a commercial engine shows that the algorithm allows sh... Show More

    Abstract: Energy is one of the key factors for development of the country, and it can gain from different sources, but some of these sources are not environmentally friend, expensive and difficult to transport; like fossil fuel. Using solar energy is the best option to solve this problem. The objective of this study is Simulation of Photovoltaic water pumpin... Show More
