One of the major problems for the successful application of biogas as a motor fuel for SI (Spark Ignition) engines are the modifications that are required into the engine as well as intake system. To overcome this problem, a new intake device has to design. With the use of this new intake device, the engine will be effectively run on biogas. Intake system for petrol operated SI engine is an combination of number of devices like Air cleaning device, Fuel hoses, Air/Fuel mixing device and Intake manifold. For safe, clean, and reliable operation of combustion devices depends to a large degree on the exact control of the fuel/air mixing process prior to ignition. This intake system is not directly used for biogas operated SI engine because the properties of biogas and petrol are different. For that purpose a new intake device will be designed to mix the air/ fuel in proper proportion for safe and clean burning of mixture and better performance of biogas operated SI engine. In that Intake Device inlet diameter remains constant while throat diameter, convergent angle, gas hole diameter and Number of holes are varied. This device has a better control on quantity of air and fuel (Biogas) which is coming into the mixing device, quantity of air and Fuel (biogas) has been controlled with the help of accelerating device it is an combination of many parts but there are two main parts which are more useful for controlling air and Fuel are piston valve and jet needle. The aim of this study is to optimize the throat diameter of intake device, number of gas holes and proper mixing of charge by using control device before the combustion process.
