This article presents the potential of improving engine performance and pollutant emissions of a ZS195 Diesel engine by exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and intake hydrogen enrichment. The effect of EGR level and hydrogen addition on the engine performance and pollutant emissions has been investigated through detailed experiments at rated speed. The experimental results have shown that when EGR level is constant, the peak pressure and maximum rate of pressure rise increase with the increase of hydrogen addition. The intake hydrogen enrichment can reduce HC, CO, and soot level and increase NOX emission, but EGR technique can offset this effect. The combustion speed and thermal efficiency increase with the increase of hydrogen addition when EGR technique has been adopted.
