APP90: MEMS Electro-magnetic Valve-Process Development


The objective of this research is to develop a valve with an actuator for fuel delivery system for a 1500mm3 Wankel engine that operates from 5000 to 35000 RPM. The engine is designed to operate with multi-fuel, such as Kerosene, Methanol, Gasoline and Diesel. This will require flow control over the mass flow rate range of 5 to 20 mg/sec. Integration into a Silicon engine end plate is desired for one particular engine application, but the project will deliver a series of prototypes that will be used for testing in other engine applications.
