Performance of Kerosene Oil Blend with Diesel Fuel on Engine

Authors(1) :-Dr. R. Ramachandra

The need of various transportation systems is increasing every day in such a fast developing world, and in the result of this, several vehicles and engine are increasing while conventional fuel like diesel and petrol are vanishing gradually with time. So it is need of the hour, we must have the alternative to above conventional fuels. The purpose of this experimental investigation is to study the effect of the blend kerosene oil blend together with conventional fuel on single cylinder diesel engine which is attached with eddy current dynamometer. An experimental analysis was made to check the diesel engine performance using various blends of kerosene with mineral diesel. Different blends of kerosene oil together with diesel in the ratio of 5%, 10% and 15% by volume and investigated under the different load conditions in a CI engine. The outcomes under various parameters were believed to be almost near to that of diesel fuel only. Different engine parameters such as brake power, brake specific fuel consumption, brake mean effective pressure, fuel consumption rate, exhaust gas temperature etc. have been determined and these were compared with diesel fuel.
