Biodiesel (Rice Bran Oil), CI Engine, Injection Pressure


Bio-diesel is one of the most promising alternatives for diesel needs. Use of edible oil may create shortage of oil seeds for daily food, which necessitates identification of new kinds of non-edible vegetable oil. The modernization of increase in the number of automobiles worldwide, the consumption of diesel and gasoline has enormously increased. As petroleum is nonrenewable source of energy and petroleum reserves are scarce now a day, there is a need to search for alternative fuels for automobiles. The intensive search for alternative fuels for compression ignition engines has been focused attention on fuels which can be derived from biodiesel in this regard cotton seed and castor seed oil is found to be a potential fuel for C.I. engines. The properties of Rice bran oil is determined by using standard methods. The experiment is to be conduct when the engine fueled with of 20%, 40%, and 60%, blend with diesel. The injection pressure is used 180 and 200 bar and engine speed is kept constant at 1500 rpm. Then investigate the performance, emission and combustion characteristics of single cylinder four stroke compressed ignition engine at different brake power outputs, and then compared with that of diesel.
