Analysis of Self-Balance Characteristics of OPOC Engine
Considering the structure feature and working principle of Opposed Piston Opposed Cylinder engine, mathematical model of kinematics relationship for internal-external piston is build. Using ADAMS software to process kinematics characteristics simulation study and comparing the simulation results with traditional diesel engine, it indicate that the OPOC two-stroke engine has better self-balancing character, less kinematics inertial force and cylinder lateral pressure, and is helpful in reducing the frictional power consumption, and improving the noise-vibration smoothness.
