Resumen

Los motores de combustión interna a gasolina tienen conocidos problemas de eficiencia térmica y alto índice de emisión de gases contaminantes. Por otro lado, existen procesos químicos y eléctricos que han permitido obtener fuentes de energía limpia del agua. La electrólisis permite mediante un proceso electroquímico la obtención de gas de hidrógeno y oxígeno, de cuya mezcla se obtiene HHO. Las características moleculares del HHO permiten la disminución de gases tóxicos al ambiente y el ahorro de combustibles hidrocarbonados en motores de combustión interna.


En este trabajo se investigan los beneficios potenciales de la mezcla de HHO como aditivo a los combustibles fósiles, en particular, la gasolina comercial. Se describe el diseño de un sistema con una celda electrolítica y se evalúa el desempeño de un motor de 100CC en términos del consumo específico de combustible, potencia, torque y emisión de gases.

Palabras clave: Electrólisis, celdas de oxihidrógeno, motores de combustión interna, energía limpia, combustibles
