Design of Electromagnetic Valve for IC Engine
In the field of internal combustion engines, pursuit for better efficiency is never ending and it is evident that the engine behavior varies with the change in valve timing and valve lift. In addition to mechanical friction, the valve springs used to close the valves of the engine must be compressed with considerable force. This can amount to an estimation of 25 percent of the total output of an engine at idle speed, which reduces the overall efficiency. In this design we will be using electromagnetic force to control and actuate the valves instead of cams in an automobile combustion engine. To implement VVT (Variable valve timing) and variable valve lift operations using electromagnet actuators.
