Abstract:

Automobile plays a major role in transportation of passengers and goods. The engine is the power source of automobile and uses fossil fuel. However, the consumption of fossil increases emission, cost and demand. This makes the need in search of an alternate source of fuel to meet the demand. Many research are going on alternate fuels and an attempt is made to run an engine using compressed air. The modified engine works by using compressed air as fuel to produce mechanical power output without any emissions which pollutes the environment. The main aim of the project is to modify a Bajaj DTSi four stroke engine to run using compressed air. The engine operates in two strokes that is downward stroke during which the air enters and expands by doing work and the upward stroke to make the piston to reach the TDC. The air engine is tested with different pressures and load. The result showed that the increase in pressure to the inlet of the engine increases the speed and load carrying. At 10 bar pressure the engine runs at a speed of about 3000 rpm. Hence the compressed air can be integrated with conventional IC engine using the same arrangement with piston and cylinder to run a vehicle.
