Research on Zero Release Closed Cycle Diesel Engine System
To reduce exposure and increase concealment, AIP (Air Independent Propulsion) power plant came into being. In a variety of AIP power devices, closed cycle diesel CCD (Closed Cycle Diesel Engine System) AIP system is the most commonly used at present. Drawing on the principle of existing CCDAIP closed cycle diesel, This paper presents a design about Zero Release Closed Cycle Diesel Engine System, which uses oxygen generation device to produce O2 for the fuel combustion by absorbing CO2，in order to realize the truely zero emissions of conventional submarines without exhaust trail. The paper also takes a preliminary exploration of the design.
