Abstract: The subject of this thesis is to develop and to test concepts and strategies of operation for the use of varieties of rape oil in combustion engines being used in agricultural machines. Modern, flexible high pressure injection pump systems as well as the possibility of influencing the energy transformation while operating with rape oil by functions of control devices generate a good basis for a cost-efficient development of enviroment-friendly engines run by rape oil as fuel. As a result the thesis provide concepts and guidelines for the construction of engines suitable for rape oil being able to be used by producers of engine or firms converting them.
