Abstract

This paper analyzes variability and uniqueness of a combustion process in the spark ignition radial engine having nine cylinders. In the case of single cylinder disturbances, multifractal approach is proposed to identify faults in the measured cylinder pressure. For better clarity, the pressure cyclic response is illustrated by means of wavelet results. The examined engine was powered by an electronic fuel injection, giving the possibility of varying doses supplied to the individual cylinders.
