Abstract
::
Utilisation of biofuels for compression ignition (CI) engines has been practically realized in automotive vehicles. Biodiesel, which is renewable and biological origin alternative diesel fuel, has been receiving more attention all over the world due to the energy needs and environmental consciousness. It is usually produced from vegetable oils, animal fat and algae by using the transesterification process. Although neat biodiesel can be used as an alternative fuel in CI engines, it is reported that 20% biodiesel blended with 80% mineral diesel (B20) is an optimum biodiesel that can be used in CI engines which can give affordable performance and lower emissions compared to mineral diesel operation. HHO gas is promising alternative fuel to run a compression ignition (CI) engine in a dual fuel mode. So the test engine was converted into a dual fuel mode, and run on Jatropha biodiesel and its 20% diesel blend and HHO in dual fuel mode. For this experimentation, a four stroke, 4.4 kW, running at 1500 rpm as a constant speed, naturally aspirated, direct injection (DI), single cylinder, air cooled, compression ignition (CI) engine was used. The combustion, performance and emission parameters of the conventional test engine run on diesel and JME20 were considered as base line data, which were considered for comparison. The results reported that brake thermal efficiency of an engine enhanced by about 3.7% and 5.8% for D100+HHO, Opt.JME20+HHO in dual fuel operation respectively compared to that of base line data at full load.
