Disadvantages of LPG cars

LPG is used as a fuel in vehicles let we know the full form of LPG is liquefied petroleum gas. Now let you check it out how to harm vehicles if you used the LPG as a fuel in your cars.

Disadvantages of LPG cars :

  • At full throttle, LPG will produce 10% less horsepower.
  • LPG ignition temperature is somewhere higher than petrol.
  • LPG reduced 5% valve life.
  • A good cooling system is necessary.
  • The vehicle weight is increased due to the use of heavy pressure cylinder to store LPG.
  • Not all petrol stations sell LPG hence you can always use petrol as a backup.
  • Installation is difficult.
  • An engine will be overheated in a long journey because complete combustion occurs so more heat is liberated.
  • Reduce engine life efficiency.
  • Handling must be done under approximately 18 bar pressure.
  • LPG characteristics odour is faint, so leakage can't be easily detected. 
  • Response to blending is feeble.  

Transistorized Coil Ignition System

In automobile industries, TCI system which provides a higher output voltage and use electronic triggering to maintain the required timing is fast replacing the conventional ignition systems.

This also called high energy electronic ignition system.

Advantages of the TCI system :
  • Reduced ignition system maintenance
  • Reduced wear of components
  • Increased reliability
  • Extend spark plug life
  • Improved ignition of lean mixtures

Difference between Battery Ignition System and Magneto Ignition System

What is Battery ignition system?

An ignition system in which battery is used for the generation of electricity and that electricity used in automobile vehicle is called a battery ignition system


What is Magneto ignition system?

An ignition system in which magneto is used for the generation of electricity and that electricity used in automobile vehicle is called a magneto ignition system

Let us have a deep insight into the comparison between both the ignition system and also check it out the difference between them. 


Battery Ignition System :
  • A battery is necessary so difficult to start the engine when the battery is discharged.
  • Maintenance problems are more due to the battery.
  • Current for a primary circuit is obtained from the battery.
  • Occupies more space.
  • Commonly used in cars and light commercial vehicle.
  • Efficiency decreased with a reduction in spark intensity.
  • A good spark is available at spark plug even low speed also.
  • Efficiency decreases with the reduction in spark intensity as engine speed rises. 
  • Spark strength does not depend on the speed due to current is supplied by a battery. 
Magneto Ignition System :
  • There is no battery required so there is no battery discharge problem.
  • Maintenance problems are less because of no battery.
  • An electric circuit is generated by the magneto.
  • Occupies less space.
  • Mainly used in racing cars and two-wheelers.
  • Efficiency improves due to high-intensity spark.
  • Due to low speed, spark quality is poor at the start.
  • Efficiency improves as the engine speed rises due to high-intensity spark. 
  • Spark strength depends on the speed of an engine due to the magneto. 

Requirement of ignition system

Smooth and reliable functioning of an ignition system is essential for the reliable working of the engine.  


The important requirement of the ignition system is listed below.

  • To provide good spark between the electrodes of the plugs at the correct timing.
  • It should work efficiently across the entire engine speed range.
  • It should be light and effective.
  • Reliable in service.
  • It should be easy to maintain and compact.
  • It should be cheap and convenient to handle.
  • Spark/Ignition timing must be optimized for all engine condition. 

What is ignition system

An ignition system generates the electrical charge between the two electrodes of the spark plug to ignite a fuel-air mixture in spark ignition internal combustion engine.


Purpose of ignition system : 


To generate a very high voltage from the 12-volt battery of the car and send this to each spark plug. 

In short to initiate flame propagation. 


Explain the ignition system : 


The ignition system can be treated as a balance of energy between that provided by an external source or released by the chemical reaction so it obeys the law of conservation of energy. 

Ignition system should provide a sufficiently large voltage across the spark plug electrodes to affect the spark discharge and duration at the appropriate time. 


To obtain maximum power from an engine, the compressed mixture delivers its maximum pressure at the time when the piston is about to its downward stroke and is very close to TDC this is the reason why Ignition timing is a very important parameter in the ignition system.



Types of ignition system : 


The ignition system classified depending upon how the primary energy for operating the circuit is made available as :
In modern automobiles the following two types are in common use :

What is engineering and Why engineering

SO YOU LIKE MATHS, TECHNOLOGY & SOLVING THE PROBLEM,

YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BECOMING AN ENGINEER.


Albert Einstein hit the nail right on the head when he thinks about the 
                       
                                     what is engineering? 

In simply say that engineers identify the problem with some effort come up with a solution and invented completely new in the process. engineers creates technology and makes the product most relevant that makes our life easier.

Engineers are shaping the future. so there is really no limit to what engineers can do.

Advantage of 12 V Ignition System

Since 1950 all car engines had 6-volt ignition systems.

The advantage of the 6-volt system is that it uses the three cell storage battery which is cheaper, lighter and less bulky than a six-cell battery of the same watt-hour capacity.

As the compression ratio and engine speed increased, the voltage required to break down hence, the 12-volt system came to be preferred.

The main advantages of 12 V ignition system are :

  • The cables of a 6 V system to be twice the thickness of 12 V.
  • Transmitting equal power without excessive voltage drop.
  • During the starting surge, nearly twice the power is available for the ignition coil.


Additives for lubrication

The modern lubricants for heavy-duty engines are highly refined which otherwise may produce sludge a progressive increase in viscosity.

For these reasons, the lubricants are seasoned by the addition of certain oil-soluble organic compounds to exhibits the desired properties.

  • Anti-oxidant
  • Anti-corrosive agents
  • Pour point depressors
  • Viscosity index improvers
  • Antifoam agent
  • Oiliness and film-strength agents
  • Pressure additives
  • Detergent

ALL THE BEST 

 

POSTGRADUATE :



  •           Go for an M.Tech degree
If you studied engineering out of passion and not because you were forced by your parents or just for the sake of doing it, then MTech is a good option. You can opt for the field of study you aspire to expertise in. For this, you need to prepare well for the entrance exams to get into a good college. GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is a national exam conducted in India which can fetch you admission in IITs, IISC or NITs and many others.


  •             Do an MBA
Don’t feel you are the technical guy your parents wanted you to be? Always felt like you are a manager and want to see yourself in a business suit in some MNC? Probably you have a fascination for an MBA too. Don’t get diverted by the thoughts that everyone is doing an MBA right now and its value has decreased. If you want to make a career in the management sector, hold managerial positions, then an MBA is the right choice. You may specialize in your area of interest which may be the all-time popular fields like HR, Marketing, Sales or the new growing domains like Digital Marketing, International Relations etc. In India, there are various entrance examinations that will help you get into the top 30 MBA colleges. CAT (Common Admission Test) serves as a gateway for an MBA at the IIMs and many other leading institutes. Some other popular exams are XAT (Xavier), NMAT, SNAP, CMAT, TISS, IRMA etc.


  •              Prepare for Civil Services
Always saw yourself as an IAS or IPS officer? Admit it, some day or the other you must have thought about preparing for the Civil Services but left the thought because you felt that it's very tough to crack!
Yes. Indeed it is one of the toughest exams in the world to crack and there lies a huge competition to be a civil servant, but you cannot hold yourself back because of this. Civil Services is not just about cracking an exam and then clearing an interview, it judges you on everything you can think of, who you are and what you stand for!
You need to put your complete focus in addition to lots of determination to prepare for Civil Services Examination. For that, you need to - Believe in yourself.


  •             Go Abroad
It is also a very good option to explore. If you choose to study abroad, you will get a lot of exposure and learning along with the education part. You might also be able to get a job at international locations if you have plans to settle abroad permanently in the future.
You can also explore integrated opportunities abroad. Along with the options of MS, you may explore options of MS+PhD and other research-oriented courses. In addition, you could look at the various fellowships in research and development category available that may fascinate you too. You can also apply for the various scholarships which will fund your education partially or completely.



How to choose a career

CARRER :

  • To the choice of career is the biggest task for all the student. Career selection is only decided by the student but nowadays scenario not a big task for a student instead of the parents.
  • Now see what are the most of cases what happen actually parents have a big dreams for the child and they observe society and then decide his/her child will also be a doctor or engineer or etc like in the biggest field without knowing his/her child interest and its a biggest reason of the most number of unemployed in India.
  • Most parents dream that his/her child will get admission to the recognized university like NITs, IITs, IIMs. After completing HSC examination they will pay a high amount of fees in coaching centre of competitive exams and motivate his/her child to do good and will be getting admission in IIMs or IITs. This is why coaching industries get more profit. and after all most number students not get admission and then they decide to satisfy a lower rank college or any college. and this reason after completion of college find a job and if not find any job they decide to do any type of job even different field job too.
  • So my advice to students to first you should tell a question to yourself first before going to decide highly competitive exam 
  • YOU HAVE POTENTIAL TO GET ADMISSION?
  • Then you say how to decide I have potential or not? that's a big question
  • You see in yourself that shows your concentration power?
  • Hows your grasping power?
  • Hows your intellectual level?
  • Then you know that you have potential to get admission in a recognized institute were a big competition.
  • all over Indian students try to get admission in that colleges like NITs, IITs, IIMs. so my advice to student is that after telling above question to yourself if you know you have extraordinary potential to crack that exam so you decide to crack exams and get admission and if not you should go any filed where you are interested and in that field you do smart work not hard work and you get better career same as like IITs, IIMs students.
  • There are many fields instead of engineer and doctor think yourself and choose your career to yourself not to see other people in our society. If you choose your interested career you doing better in your field that my promise to you. and don't stop in your career whatever career you choose always think about one step ahead now what I do better in the filed? If you do this one day you also become the most successful person and one day you are in a position to that you not looking for a job but you also hire a person for the job in your field industries.
