The fewest fuel consumption rate of the engine is the optimization objective for the hydraulic hybrid excavator deterministic dynamic programming simulation
The overall calculation formula for obtaining the total fuel use and C[O.sub.2] emissions estimates are formed by combining the productivity rate models with fuel consumption rate for diesel fuel.
The C[O.sub.2] emissions level depends on the power of the engine and its associate cylinder capacity, on the fuel consumption rate --related with the labor execution time--, and on the number of "walks" required given the type of soil preparation (conventional/traditional, soft, and zero), which differs of the pre-harvesting cycle where the sugarcane is (ratoon or sett) and on the agro-ecologic zone where the lot is present.
Solution to the problem of formation of the science-based standards of the fuel consumption rate per trip for shunting work is possible through the use of a mathematical model that takes into account the impact of transient processes on the increase in fuel consumption.
where MOEe is the vehicle's fuel consumption rate and its unit is ml/s; KV is the regression coefficient (see Table 1).
Mixed conifer slash resulted in higher grinding productivity (39.0 to 45.1 bone dry US tons/h) and a lower fuel consumption rate (0.57 to 0.90 gal/h) than hardwood whole trees.
The third is the fuel consumption rate, which is given by the ratio of the above two metrics (gallons per mile).
For instance, if only a rather simplistic approximation of the thermochemical behaviour of the cool flame region is needed, the size of the database may be significantly reduced so as to contain only simulation results regarding heat release rate, which is introduced to the CFD code as a local heat "source" term, and fuel consumption rate, which corresponds to a fuel concentration "sink" term in the CFD code.
Despite its increased output of 50hp compared to the Cayenne Turbo, the new model has the same fuel consumption rate of 11.5 litre per 100km.
