Title (EN) METHOD AND ASSEMBLY FOR DELIVERING FUEL IN A FUEL TANK
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET ENSEMBLE DE DISTRIBUTION DE CARBURANT DANS UN RÉSERVOIR DE CARBURANT
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure is related to a method and an assembly for delivering fuel in a fuel tank (10), wherein the fuel tank comprises at least a first chamber (12) having a module pot (18) disposed therein and at least a first pump (30) adapted to deliver fuel from the first chamber to the module pot, and wherein a fuel pump (20) for delivering fuel to an engine is disposed within the module pot. In order to minimize the duty cycle of the pumps and therefore the energy consumption, it is proposed according to the present disclosure that a sensor device (22) is used to detect a predetermined minimum fill level in the module pot, wherein the pump disposed in the first chamber is activated when the minimum fill level is reached and is deactivated after a predetermined time interval or when a predetermined higher fill level in the module pot is reached.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un ensemble pour distribuer du carburant dans un réservoir de carburant (10), le réservoir de carburant comprenant au moins une première chambre (12) ayant un pot de module (18) disposé à l'intérieur de celle-ci et au moins une première pompe (30) conçue pour distribuer du carburant de la première chambre au pot de module et une pompe à carburant (20) pour distribuer du carburant à un moteur étant disposée à l'intérieur du pot de module. Afin de réduire au minimum le rapport cyclique des pompes et donc la consommation d'énergie, il est proposé selon la présente invention qu'un dispositif de détection (22) soit utilisé pour détecter un niveau de remplissage minimal prédéfini dans le pot de module, la pompe disposée dans la première chambre étant activée lorsque le niveau de remplissage minimal est atteint et étant désactivée après un intervalle de temps prédéfini ou lorsqu'un niveau de remplissage supérieur prédéfini dans le pot de module est atteint.
