  • Patent number: 9587602
    Abstract: In order to constitute a fuel high-pressure pipe that is compact and easy to connect to injectors, one of both the end sections of a fuel high-pressure pipe is formed as a first connecting section connected to a fuel supply port of one injector, and the other one of the end sections of the fuel high-pressure pipe is formed as a second connecting section connected to a fuel discharge port of another injector.

  • Publication number: 20160230688
    Abstract: An engine control device includes an engine failure determination unit and a rotation rate control unit. The engine failure determination unit determines whether or not a predetermined failure condition is satisfied based on a result of detection performed by a sensor that detects the state of a marine vessel engine. If an engine rotation rate is higher than a limited rotation rate when the engine failure determination unit determines that the failure condition is satisfied, the rotation rate control unit decreases the engine rotation rate to the limited rotation rate and performs a limited-operation control for rejecting any rotation rate operation that indicates a higher engine rotation rate than the limited rotation rate.

  • Patent number: 8826661
    Abstract: In order to reduce radiation heat from the turbine housing of a supercharger, the turbine housing is conventionally water-cooled or covered with a heat shielding material, but it is required to control heat loss due to excessive water cooling or high temperature on the outer surface of the heat shielding material. On the contrary, a solution by a cooling structure consisting of an inner thermal insulation portion of an air layer and an outer low temperature portion covering the inner thermal insulation portion has an inevitable problem of increasing number of components and upsizing.

  • Patent number: 8402953
    Abstract: It is an object to provide an engine that makes it possible to constantly detect the number of rotations of a supercharger with a calculation load of an ECU reduced. An engine 1 is provided with an engine base 8 comprised of a plurality of cylinders and a turbocharger 7, a crank angle sensor 4, a turbo sensor 5 that detects rotations of the turbocharger 7 as pulses, an amplifier 11 that divides the pulses by an arbitrary division ratio and calculates the divided pulses, and an ECU 10 that judges a surge condition of the turbocharger 7, wherein the ECU 10 sets a predetermined position of a piston of each cylinder in a crank angle of the engine base 8 to count start timing of the divided pulses, outputs the divided pulses counted from the count start timing to the number of predetermined rotations as a first output, and judges that, if a difference between the first outputs at every cylinder is more than a predetermined value, the turbocharger 7 is in the surge condition.

  • Patent number: 8327822
    Abstract: A diesel engine in which a lubrication oil on the wall surface of the cylinder liner is prevented from being burned and diluted, and a smoke resulting from the local lack of air in the combustion chamber is also prevented from being generated. The diesel engine comprises a group injection hole nozzle 20 and a piston 110. A step 115 having a height gradually increased toward the radial outer circumference of the piston is formed over the entire circumference of the top surface 111 of the piston. Furthermore, a tilted part 115b is formed as the step surface of the step 115.
