Abstract : Studies of cold starting of IC engines carried out at Indian Institute of Petroleum (IIP) and field trials at high altitudes under sub-zero temperature conditions are described in this paper. Different operating factors influencing the cold starting of diesel engines and the role of starting aids developed at IIP have also been described. IIP device has given satisfactory starting performance upto temperature as low as -35 degree C.
