NAME : KHAIRUL ANWAR BIN ISHAK ID NO : 56211115099 LECTURE : MD REDZUAN BIN ZOOLFAKAR LGB31603 MARINE POWER PLANT & AUXILIARY SUPPORT SYSTEM TITTLE : DISEL ENGINE INTRODUCTION The diesel engine and Rudolf Diesel, is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel which is injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the elevated temperature of the air in the cylinder due to mechanical compression (adiabatic compression). Diesel engines work by compressing only the air. This increases the air temperature inside the cylinder to such a high degree that atomized diesel fuel that is injected into the combustion chamber ignites spontaneously. This contrasts with Spark-ignition engines such as a petrol engine (gasoline engine) or gas engine (using a gaseous fuel as opposed to petrol), which use a spark plug to ignite an air-fuel mixture. In diesel engines, glow plugs (combustion chamber pre-warmers) may be used to aid starting in cold weather, or when the engine uses a lower compression-ratio, or both. The original diesel engine operates on the "constant pressure" cycle of gradual combustion and produces no audible knock. Inn additional, Diesel engines may be designed as either two-stroke or four-stroke cycles. They were originally used as a more efficient replacement for stationary steam engines. Since the 1910s they have been used in submarines and ships and also use in locomotives, trucks, heavy equipment and electricity generation plants followed later. Diesel engine use for large ships have engines of all types, from 2- or 4- stroke diesel engines to turbines similar to those on airplanes or even just several diesel generators that power thrusters or pods. It all depends on what the ship is designed to do and how it will be operated. The majority of large commercial ships, from freighters to oil tankers, use 2-stroke, slow speed diesel engines connected to their propeller. Compared to other fuels, this is very cheap but also known for lots of heavy air pollutants including sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides.

DIESEL ENGINE IN CARGO SHIP Most of the diesel engines are utilized by the entire ship and have different power generators. Diesel engines are also used in cargo ships and various types of ships. Typical ships such as bots also use diesel engines. All diesel engines (including marine diesel engines) are very reliable and extremely durable machines. Diesel engines are also fairly economical.
