Coal-water-slurry (CWS) engine tests designed to evaluate a new accumulator-based injection system are described in this paper. The new injection system was found to improve CWS burnout considerably at both full and part engine loads. The peak cylinder firing pressure when operating with CWS was no higher than when operating with diesel oil. These data demonstrate the improved engine performance that can be achieved with the accumulator-based injection system.
