Topic : Emission characteristics of a dual fueled diesel engine powered with Jatropha oil and Producer gas

Authors:B.Prashanth || Swarup Kumar Nayak. [3]C. Manisha

Abstract:The present paper gives an experimental study of twin cylinder diesel engine operated in dual fuel using jatropha oil methyl ester as the pilot fuel and producer gas as primary fuel. Producer gas is produced by the gasification of Babul wood and the jatropha oil is produced by the transesterification process. Global warming and change in the balance of ecosystem is due to the emission of different harmful gases in to the atmosphere. This has led scientists to find an alternative to the present problem and one among them is alternative fuel (Biodiesel). A remarkable growth is observed in the automobile as well as industry sectors and this resulted in the continuous exploitation of fossil fuels. The utilization of biodiesel in the engine reduces the excessive use of petroleum fuels and also reduces the excessive emission of soot particles. Biodiesel is degradable and the production process is simple which makes it easy for everyone to understand. The experimental study shows the variation of emission characteristics of HC, CO, CO2and pilot fuel savings with respect to varying load when the engine is operated in dual fuel mode..

Keywords: Engine, jatropha oil, producer gas, gasification, transesterification, emission.
