Abstract:

Demands to use the world’s fossil fuel reserves have been getting higher recently due to global industrialization and the increase of road vehicles running on petroleum-based fuels. Nowadays, fossil fuels are used mostly in the transportation sector; in which diesel is the most commonly used fuel. The fuel properties put great impact on engine performance. The Biodiesel cannot be directly used in the diesel engines because some of its fuel properties which poorly affect engine operation, but it can be blended with diesel fuel or alcohols. The present research is aimed at exploring technical feasibility of Jatropha oil in compression ignition engine without any substantial hardware modifications. In this work the methyl ester of Jatropha oil was investigated for its performance as a diesel engine fuel. The blends were obtained by mixing diesel and esterified Jatropha in the following proportions J10D90 which indicates jatropha biodiesel 10% and Diesel 90%, Similarly J20D80, J30D70, J40D60, J50D50, J75D25 and J100D0 were prepared. Experiments have been conducted with J0D100 (Pure diesel) and J100D0 (Pure biodiesel). The aluminium oxide additive is added to methyl ester of Jatropha to study the performance and exhaust emissions of diesel engine. Further the proportions extends to the different ratios of prepared biodiesel. Performance parameters like brake thermal efficiency, specific fuel consumption, brake power were determined. Exhaust emissions like CO2, CO, NOX and smoke have been evaluated.
