Abstract

Biodiesel is nothing but the alkyl monsters of fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats are attracting interest as an alternative fuel for diesel locomotives. The biodiesel fueled or blended diesel engines make less carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbons, and particulate emissions than diesel–fueled engines. However, the properties of biodiesel (physical and chemical) are different from diesel, including a larger bulk modulus and a higher cetane number. These properties can be affected by oxidation of the fuel during storage. These changes can affect the timing of the combustion process and potentially cause increases in emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx). The performance and emission characteristics of diesel engines depend on many parameters. Precise control over the fuel injection process is one of the most important factors and plays a real important role in combustion to increase the engine performance with minimal exhaust emission. Injection timing and Injection pressure are the two important parameters which control the fuel injection process and enhance the more complete combustion. The objective of this study is to assess the effect of injection timing on biodiesel fueled diesel engine combustion and exhaust emissions.
