Engine Speed

Some articles on engine speed, engine, engines, speed:

Shift Light
... Ideally a shift lamp will illuminate at the engine speed beyond that which delivers the maximum BHP such that the BHP before and after shifting is the same ... Accelerating the engine beyond this point is not conducive to rapid acceleration ... to have shift lights as standard equipment these would usually signal for an upshift at an engine speed that provided maximum fuel efficiency, lower than the ideal engine speed for maximum BHP ...
Common Rail - Principles
... In order to lower engine noise, the engine's electronic control unit can inject a small amount of diesel just before the main injection event ("pilot" injection), thus reducing its explosiveness and ... Common rail engines require very short (< 10 second) or no heating-up time at all, dependent on ambient temperature, and produce lower engine noise and emissions than older systems ... Diesel engines have historically used various forms of fuel injection ...
Clutch Control - Benefits - Changing From First To Second Gear Under Maximum Power
... As the clutch slips, engine speed is lost but torque is not lost except through the effect of the new engine speed on the engine torque itself ... In most car engines the torque output is higher as the engine speed increases up to 4500RPM or more ... It is not necessary to maintain high engine speed to properly operate a motor vehicle ...
Trionic 8 - Throttle Regulation
... torque can be higher than that requested by ECM when, for example Maximum engine torque at the current operating point has already been attained The traction control system (TCS ... Fuel injection is sequential and regulated with air mass per combustion and engine speed as parameters ... emissions are reduced during changes in load Idle speed control is integrated Load compensation is possible over the entire load and engine speed range Efficient engine torque limitation is achieved over the ...
Turboglide - Operation
... have a three element torque converter, consisting of an impeller, which is an engine driven pump turbine that rotates with the flywheel, a transmission drive turbine that receives the energy of the oil ... the oil is passed to the direct turbine which is direct drive at driveshaft speed ... greatest gear reduction ratio is relatively easy to bring up to match pump (engine) speed and the car starts from rest easily and accelerates quickly ...

Famous quotes containing the words speed and/or engine:

    It was undoubtedly the feeling of exile—that sensation of a void within which never left us, that irrational longing to hark back to the past or else to speed up the march of time, and those keen shafts of memory that stung like fire.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    Industrial man—a sentient reciprocating engine having a fluctuating output, coupled to an iron wheel revolving with uniform velocity. And then we wonder why this should be the golden age of revolution and mental derangement.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
