Experimental Investigation of Performance, Combustion and Emission Characteristics of Palash Biodiesel on Diesel Engine


Backgrounds/Objective: To investigate the combustion performance and emissions characteristics of blends of Palash biodiesel on VCR diesel. Method/statistical Analysis: Blends of palash biodiesel and diesel as a fuel was used in VCR diesel engine at different loads. The variations on the performance parameters like Brake Thermal Efficiency (BTE), Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC), emissions parameters like Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydro Carbon (HC), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), and combustion parameters like heat release rate (HRR) and cylinder pressure are analyzed and compared with that of diesel. Finding: The results revealed that engine performance was better for B20 blend of palash biodiesel. BSFC decreased and BTE has increased when compared to that of diesel. HC and CO emissions have found decreased with blends of palash biodiesel and NOx emission has increased as compared with that of diesel. Improvement: By the use of biodiesel engine exhaust emissions can be reduced.
