Compression Ignition Engine, Brake Thermal Efficiency, Specific Fuel Consumption


Experimental work has been carried out to analyze the performance characteristics of a single cylinder 3.67 kW, compression ignition engine fuelled with diesel at fuel injection pressures of 180 bar, 200 bar and 220 bar. The main objective of this study is to investigate the brake thermal efficiency, specific fuel consumption (SFC) are Calculated. The performance characteristics were presented and concluded that brake thermal efficiency increases with increase in injection pressure; Specific Fuel Consumption decreases with increase in injection pressure significantly.
