Performance Evaluation of CI Engine using Karanja Biodiesel as an Alternative Fuel

Authors(3) :-Madhavi S. Harne, Milind A. Pelagade, Ramakant Shrivastava

Biodiesel is an alternative diesel fuel that is produced from renewable resources. The use of biodiesel is rapidly increasing around the world, making it incumbent to fully understand its impacts on the diesel engine combustion process and pollutant formation. Biodiesel is known as the mono-alkyl-esters of long chain fatty acids derived from renewable feed stocks, such as, vegetable oils or animal fats, for use in compression ignition engines. In the present work, the performance of single cylinder water-cooled diesel engine using methyl-ester of Karanja oil as fuel was evaluated for its performance and exhaust emissions. Different blends of Karanja Oil (B5, B10, B15, B20) were compared for their performance characteristics with pure Diesel(B100).The performance was assessed for the parameters viz. Indicated Power, Fuel Consumption, Break Thermal Efficiency, Air fuel Ratio, BSFC(Break Specific Fuel Consumption), Exhaust gas Temperature against different loads.
