Energy cells were used on many earlier diesel engines; they were a small [replaceable]chamber in the cylinder head that the injector sprayed fuel into. It was called a Lanova system, presumably after the designer of this combustion chamber. The chamber served to control the rate of combustion and maximize turbulence, it also cut down on Diesel 'knock'.
Most newer engines are Direct injection, and the tubulence chambers are built into the piston, plus injectors and pumps are much more sophisticated now.
Among the brands that used the Lanova system were Allis Chalmers, Oliver, Case, Minneapolis Moline, and I think Massey Harris.

From the time I was a young boy growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I would spend a considerable amount of time helping my father repair or rebuild equipment and engines, etc. on our 2 1/2 acre "spread". Pop always dreamed of having more acreage out in the country where he could retire and tinker as much as he wanted and often reminisced about his boyhood days on his grandfathers farm in Montecello, ...
