COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT OF PERFORMANCE AND EMISSION ANALYSIS OF A DIESEL ENGINE FUELED WITH BIODIESEL PREPARED FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES
Present study experimentally investigates the use of biodiesel prepared from two potential non-edible oil (Karanja and Jatropha) and waste cooking oil in compression ignition engine. Keeping in view the low temperature operability and other durability issues found in pure biodiesel, B-20 blends were experimented in diesel engine. The performance and emission parameter were observed and analyzed. All the B-20 blends showed performance and emission characteristics similar to that of high speed diesel. WCB-20 showed highest NOx emission at full load. Karanja biodiesel blend showed good performance characteristics compared to Jatropha and waste cooking biodiesel blend. The results reveal that all the 20% blending test fuel can be used in compression ignition engine as a supplementary fuel.
