Diesel Engine

Diesel engines are internal combustion engines that use the heat of compression to initiate ignition to burn the fuel, which is injected into the combustion chamber during the final stage of compression. By comparison a petrol engine uses spark plugs to ignite the air-fuel mixture. The engine and thermodynamic Diesel cycle were both developed by Rudolf Diesel in 1897. Diesel engines have been used in everything from generators to submarines.
