Palm Biodiesel, Single Cylinder Diesel Engine


Environmental worry and availability of petroleum fuels have caused interest in the search for new alternative fuels for internal combustion (petrol and diesel) engine. Several alternate fuels are tried by various researches. An experimental study has been carried out for palm biodiesel blended with diesel used in a single cylinder diesel engine. The Palm seed oil is obtained from the seeds of palm tree. Palm seed oil presents a very promising scenario of functioning as alternative fuels to fossil diesel fuel. Experimental work will perform for five loads, i.e. 1,3,5,7 and 9 using Diesel, Palm biodiesel- diesel blends i.e. diesel, P10, P20, P40, P60, P80 and pure Palm biodiesel with load variation of 1kg load to 9kg load and compared with base cases i.e. engine using diesel as a fuel. The emission parameters which will study in emission CO emission, HC emission, CO2 emission, NOx emission. The results of experimental investigation with palm biodiesel blends were compared with that of baseline diesel. As the percentage of Palm biodiesel increased in the diesel fuel the HC, NOX and CO2 emission is increased slightly as compared to the diesel fuel.
