Abstract: The combustion process of internal combustion (IC) engines show variations from one cycle to another even if the speed, load and all other engine parameters are kept constant. These variations and disturbances in engine combustion parameters are called cyclic variations. There are different methods for analyzing cyclic variations like coefficient of variation (COV) method, correlation coefficient, wavelet transform, artificial neural network etc. Indicated mean effective pressure, heat release rate, pressure rise rate and maximum cylinder pressure are the different combustion parameters whose cyclic variability is analyzed. Wavelet transform method is very effective technique for analyzing cyclic variations in combustion parameters of diesel engine. It can simultaneously give information about the magnitude as well as the locations of cyclic variations in a diesel engine.
