7 Project Objective Develop a Gaseous Mass Flow Rate Controller (GMFRC) that can deliver a precise amount of CNG for use in an internal combustion engine Design a distribution plate for a means of mixing the CNG with air Week 3 Problem Definition Review - 9/11/14

8 Definition: Gaseous Mass Flow Rate Controller A device that can precisely regulate and control flow rates of various gases Example: Regulator on a Gas Stove Week 3 Problem Definition Review - 9/11/14

9 How will this CNG system work? Week 3 Problem Definition Review - 9/11/14 Air intake Intake manifold Throttle body Fuel injector

10 Problem Statement: Current Design Dynamic Range of Flow of 100:1 Flow Rate Accuracy of ±1% No means of Flow Rate Control Not ready for use in an Automotive Environment Week 3 Problem Definition Review - 9/11/14

11 Problem Statement: Desired State Increase the flow rate accuracy to ±0.5% A Distribution Plate for mixing CNG and Air Smaller and Lighter than Current Prototype A Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) Actuator Control Algorithm to Increase Flow Rate Accuracy Week 3 Problem Definition Review - 9/11/14

12 Problem Statement: Project Deliverables Fully operational Prototype that can be Tested and Verified with Compressed Air Complete Technical Design Documentation Comprehensive System Operation Instruction Manual Technical Competitive Analysis Documentation of Failure Modes Demonstration at Imagine RIT Week 3 Problem Definition Review - 9/11/14
