EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSIS OF DIESEL ENGINE USING ALGAE BIO-FUEL
WITH DIETHYL ETHER AS ADDITIVES
India is the world’s largest developing country, which has huge population and thus the number of vehicles has been increasing, the fact is that consume more power than generate. In our modern world fossil fuels cannot be able to full fill the demand and thus leads the cost of fossil fuel to increase. The fossil fuels emit more hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide and thus lead to the environmental pollution. This made the researchers to search for alternate fuels. The best alternate fuel which is identified so far is bio fuel. Bio fuels can be extracted in many forms and by many methods. All the method has its own merits and demerits. The bio fuel extracted from Spirulina micro algae which has high lipid content and high biomass productivity. Bio fuel has low performance characteristics and thus cannot be used directly in the commercial vehicles. The stability of bio fuel increased by adding 5% Diethyl Ether (DEE) as an additive with 10% Spirulina micro algae bio oil by keeping 90% diesel as base fuel. It increases the Brake thermal efficiency and reduces the specific fuel consumption (SFC) of the diesel engine and also improves the combustion characteristics of the fuel. The emissions such as hydro carbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) are also reduced.
