Alternative Fuel, Petrol, Biogas, Compression Ratio, Ignition Parameter etc


The research on alternative fuels for internal combustion engine has become essential due to depletion of petroleum products and its major contribution for pollutants, where Natural gas is one of the most promising fuel alternatives for the future. Most of the BIOGAS fuelled vehicles in India are aftermarket retrofitted conversions from the existing SI engine vehicles. it is found that power produced by the BIOGAS engine is less compare to Gasoline engine. To increase the performance of the Bi-fuel engine there are many parameter which can be optimized. One of them is Compression Ration and Ignition energy. BIOGAS because of high ignition temperature and low flame speed compare to gasoline for complete combustion higher ignition energy is required. The objective of this research is to improve engine performance and emissions of BIOGAS fuelled SI engine by optimize ignition energy and compression ratio. The performance, emission and combustion characteristics with different Ignition Parameter with Compression Ratio are compared. It has been found from the results that the higher the compression ratio, the higher the brake thermal efficiency. The Performance and emission both decreased when engine was made to run on BIOGAS instead of Petrol. The review of this study can contribute important data for the design and optimization of Dedicated Biogas SI engine fuelled with BIOGAS for performance enhancement and emission reduction.
