Investigation on the performance and emission characteristics of diesel engine with the blends of mustard oil, grape seed oil & sesame oil


Raghuram Pradhan

This paper presents the experimental results on Performance and Emission Characteristics of Diesel Engine with different blends of Diesel Fuels on an Unmodified Diesel Engine. The tests were conducted with total of Six Blends. B15, B30, B45 are the three blends that have been tested. Load tests were conducted using Petroleum Diesel and Biodiesel Blends on Kirloskar Single Cylinder 4-Stroke Diesel Engine. During load tests, the engine performance and oil sample analysis are conducted. The experimental results indicate that the engine can be safely operated with Blends of Grape Seed Oil, Sesame Oil and Mustard Oil varies as 50-50-900 ml, 100-100-800 ml, without significant changes in the Engine Power, Fuel Economy and Lubricating Oil Properties. However due to lower calorific value of Bio Diesel, the Engines operated with Bio Diesel blend developed lower output. Therefore, it is necessary to use optimum blend of Biodiesel to minimize the reduction in power output. Earlier studies have been limited to power output an Emissions only. The effect of Bio Diesel blends on Engine Performance but also on the engine lubricant. This report presents the results of load tests conducted on Single Cylinder Diesel Engine using Petroleum Diesel and Bio Diesel blends with Grape Seed, Sesame, Mustard Oil varies as 50-50-900 ml and 100-100-800 ml with the same quantity of engine oil in the tests. The Performance of Kirloskar Single Cylinder Diesel Engine by varying the Mustard Oil, Grape Seed Oil and Sesame Oil as B10, B20, B10(2) and calculate the different characteristic parameters were estimated and concluded that the efficiency of the engine is increased for some blends. The brake power of the B10 (2) blends is higher in 15% of load condition. In 30 % load conditions blends show better output than diesel. The mechanical efficiency of the B 10 (2) blend is superior to all other blends and diesel. And even the emissions are also very good comparing to other blends and diesel. So, the diesel blend B 10 (2) can be used as fuel along with diesel. B 10(2) is a blend of sesame oil and mustard oil and along with this other blends are also be used for some extent. The CO emitted is very less in diesel than any other blends but oxygen content is high in blends so as blending increases the Nox emission reduced by considerable amount. The amount of HC released is negligible in all cases of blends and diesel.
