Abstract:

Currently, alternate fuels are being investigated in detail for application in compression ignition (CI) engines resulting in exciting potential opportunities to increase energy security and reduce gas emissions. Biodiesel is one of the alternative fuels which is renewable and environmental friendly and can be used in diesel engines with little or no modification. The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of biodiesel and biodiesel blends on the performance and emission characteristics of a CI engine. The experimental work was carried out on a four cylinder, four stroke, direct injection (DI) and turbocharged diesel engine by using biodiesel made form vegetable oil as a pumpkin seed oil and comparing them to normal diesel. The blended fuels used in the analyses are B20, B60 and B100. The engine was operated under various loads. Based on the measured parameters, detailed analyses were carried out on major regulated emissions such as NOx, CO, CO2, O2 and HC. It has been seen that the biodiesel types (sources) do result in significant differences in emissions.
