A laboratory scale downdraft biomass gasifier was designed to deliver a mechanical power of 5 kW and thermal power of about 18 kW. The biomass chosen as sized wood and briquette of saw dust. The various properties of biomass such as biomass size, densities, proximate and ultimate analysis, calorific value etc. have been measured. The design of the biomass downdraft gasifier is basically empirical, that is implied from different mathematical relations and charts based on past experiences.
