New energy such as nuclear fusion reaction is the future,it represets the new times and future, for diesel engine represets currently,some industry professionals still say that diesel will continue to power the global economy for years into the future.
U.S. energy officials announced Tuesday that government scientists in California produced the first successful nuclear fusion reaction resulting in net energy gain.
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory said the National Ignition Facility's historic achievement, also known as scientific energy breakeven, occurred on Dec. 5.
The experiment surpassed the fusion threshold by laboratory surpassed the fusion threshold by delivering 2.05 megajoules (MJ) of energy to the target, resulting in 3.15 MJ of fusion energy output.
While invention of the diesel engine goes way back – all the way to the 1890s. Since their introduction, they have been useful in a variety of industries and functionalities.
1893 Rudolf Diesel patents the compression ignition engine.
1897 Rudolf Diesel produces the first Diesel engine.
1905 Alfred Buchi patents the turbocharger.
1911 Frederick Lamplough patents a unit injector.
1916 Common rail fuel systems first used by Vickers for their submarine engines.
1927 Robert Bosch improves fuel pump design.
1965 Clessie Cummins patents the engine compression(Jake) brake which is produced by Jacobs Vehicle Systems.
1987 Detroit Diesel introduces the Series 60,the first engine with a complete electronic control system.
1993 Caterpillar introduces the HEUI(Hydraulically Actuated Electronically Controlled Unit Injector)
1994 Bosh introduces the electronic unit injector.
1995 Denso produce the first electronic high-pressure common rail system.
2000 EPA emissions drive manufacturess to high-pressure common rail systems.
2007 Diesel particulate filters used to meet EPA emissions.
The process for social and economic globalization has been aided significantly by the advent of the diesel engine. Beginning in the 1950s, diesel engines also started to become critical for non-transportation uses such as generators. Many of today’s modern hospitals and large-scale businesses have backup diesel generators that come on in the event of a power outage. Moreover, diesel is the fuel that is most often chosen to generate electricity in remote locations that do not have access to high-voltage power grids. Many islands nations, especially in the Caribbean, rely on diesel fuel to generate electricity needed to power rural electric cooperatives.
As environmentalists and natural resource professionals continue to pressure governments to move forward with initiatives to phase out the production of the internal combustion engine in favor of electric vehicles, some automakers have struggled to find a path forward with diesel technology. The reputation of diesel has struggled in recent years, even after a long history of helping the world achieve greater levels of economic development and growth. With this in mind, some industry professionals still say that diesel will continue to power the global economy for years into the future.
