Homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine technology is relatively new and has not matured sufficiently to be commercialized compared with conventional engines. It can use spark ignition (SI) or compression ignition (CI) engine configurations, capitalizing on the advantages of both: high engine efficiency with low emissions levels. However, the combustion behavior in an HCCI engine is difficult to predict because it has no spark plug or injector. The chemical kinetics mechanism influences the combustion with some heat losses to the cylinder wall. The effect of different heat loss models in a diesel HCCI engine has to be investigated further. A single-zone thermodynamics model was used in this study along with three different heat loss models: Woshcni, modified Woschni, and Hohenberg correlations. The results will be validated against experiments, and a good heat loss model will be used for further investigation of combustion behavior.
