Experimental Investigations on a Four Stoke Diesel Engine Operated by Neem Biodiesel Blended with Diesel

Authors(1) :-Dr. V. Naga Prasad Naidu

The fast depletion of fuels and huge demand for diesel in transport, power and agricultural sectors activates the research and development of substitute energy resources to maintain economic development. One of the best alternatives is Biodiesels obtained from Vegetable oils. The present study focuses on Evaluation of performance and emission characteristics of a single cylinder four stroke diesel engine with different blends (B05, B10, B15, B20 and B25 in comparison to diesel) of Neem biodiesel and Diesel. The performance is compared with diesel fuel, on the basis of brake specific fuel consumption, brake thermal efficiency, exhaust gas temperature and emissions of hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen. From the experimental Results it is observed that the blend B20 have closer performance to diesel and hydrocarbon emissions are less than diesel.
