Ha, Jan, this is getting cronical
I like where this discussion is goeing.
Well, l must say l do not cover idle to 80 asl wuld like. Idle screws me if l dont richen the a/f mix and have the rpm at above 1200. Dont know why, sometimes l driveoff after 10 min of 900rpm idle, sometimes cant after 15s of 1200rpm idle. Gasifiers are female right?
Well, just the fact that althugh we have similar displacement engines, but you drive best at 2200rpm and l see best torq in a 2500-3200 range, says a lot on performance in a similar size gasifier.
80kmh is usualy not a problem, but it bites me so hard knowing if l sacrifice my char reserve, l have no problems goeing 120kmh. There has to be a way of makeingthis a reality not a risk!
This is why l proposed 3 planes, althugh 2 shuld work too. Less complexity.
I think the restriction is not our worst enemy. I run a 9cm restriction before, and a 10.5cm now, cant see much difference in power drag but l know this bigger one has lots of gas flow potential.
Max, l was thinking about automatism, but came to a conclusion that Wayne is right. Wood gas is 75% operator and it shuld stay this way. Perhaps later, if this shows ti work well, a automatisated process will be upgraded.
