Performance and Emission Evaluation of C.I Engine Using MAHUA Oil
In recent years due to depletion of fossil fuels, high oil prices and emission problems with conventional fuels such as gasoline and diesel, there has arisen a need for alternate fuels. Biodiesel is an important alternate fuel and that has been used here. Simulation is done in a step by step manner. Ideal cycle simulation is modified by taking fuel used into account in adiabatic flame temperature calculation. Actual cycle simulation is performed by including the friction losses involved in the system and by considering the combustion as progressive. Performance characteristics of biodiesel are compared with that of diesel to validate the program developed for the performance characteristics of biodiesel fuelled engine.
