CI Engine, Biodiesel Blends, Coconut Oil and Honge Oil


The accessibility of energy resources plays a key role in the development of a country. Over the last few decades, there is an augment in the utilization of energy worldwide resulting in the exhaustion of fossil fuels. This necessitates craving on other countries for energy resources. Therefore, a renewable eco-friendly alternate fuel has to be replaced in place of fossil fuel which can be vegetable oils as an alternate fuel for diesel. Since, oils are more viscous it cannot be used directly in CI engines without any engine modification thus; an alteration of vegetable oils to biodiesel is done by a Tran’s esterification process. The present paper is restricted to Bio fuel substitute for the production of diesel which can be achieved from a number of edible and non-edible oil resources. The oil obtained from these seeds of different categories was Trans esterified by suitable method depending on their FFA content to achieve the optimum level of biodiesel. The obtained biodiesel was used to run the CI-Engine and analysis was done with all the standard parameters. Finally, the blends of Cocos Nucifera and Pongamia Pinnata Bio-Diesel were used to evaluate the efficiency of CI-Engine system by employing variable reaction mixtures to determine the performance of the CI-Engine using Trans esterified methyl ester blends with diesel.
