Optimizing Performance of CI Engine fueled with Undi Oil Biodiesel

Authors(3) :-Rahul Krishnaji Bawane, Nilima Baliram Gadge, Dinesh Krishnaji Bawane

An increasing demand of fossil fuels has being a critical problem for us. The natural resources of fossil fuel are dwindling day by day. Biodiesel that may called natural fuel may be a good source or substitute for fossil fuel in future. An experiment is conducted to obtain the operating and emission characteristics of Undi Oil Biodiesel on Diesel Engine run on various Blends of biodiesel, Load Conditions and Injection Pressure. From the comparison of results, it is inferred that the engine performance is improved with significant reduction in emissions for the chosen oils without any engine modification. The effective injection pressure can be fixed based on the experimental results obtained in the engine since the findings of the present research work infer that the biodiesel obtained from Undi oil is a promising alternative fuel for direct-injection four-stroke VCR diesel engine.
