Abstract

Biodiesel, an alternative fuel for C.I Engines, is derived from renewable domestic resources, thereby relieving reliance on petroleum fuel imports. It is biodegradable and non-toxic. Biodiesel has a relatively high flash point, which makes it less volatile and safer to transport. It provides lubricating properties that can reduce engine wear and extend engine life. These merits of biodiesel make it a good alternative to petroleum based fuel and have led to its use in many countries, especially in environmentally sensitive areas. The present work is an experimental investigation on a single cylinder stationary diesel engine which is run with biodiesel blends derived from Waste Cooking Oil. The engine is run under different operating conditions of load at constant speed of 1500 RPM to evaluate performance and emission characteristics. A comparative study of the above characteristics at various injection timings was done. It was found that for the best blend of B20, the performance was optimum at an injection timing of 24º bTDC at full load condition, where as at part load performance at 27º bTDC was better. However the emission characteristics show that injection timing of 24º bTDC was optimum.
