‘How Does a Diesel Engine Work?’

Diesel engine, also known as a compression-ignition engine or self-ignition engine, derives its name from Rudolf Diesel (1858-1913), a German inventor who patented it. Unlike gasoline engines, Diesel engines do not require a spark provided by spark plugs to start. Instead, ignition occurs under the influence of compressed air, which generates high temperature. The most commonly used fuel in Diesel engines is diesel fuel, commonly known as diesel oil.
