AN INVESTIGATIVE STUDY ON ENGINE PERFORMANCE AND COMBUSTION PRODUCTS OF A MANUAL DIESEL ENGINE FUELED WITH AN OIL PRODUCED FROM LOCALLY AVAILABLE NAHAR SEEDSANIMESH DAS AND MANJULA DAS GHATAK
The trial results shows the change in various execution parameters and emission attributes of nahar oil biodiesel and its mixes with diesel in a four stroke four cylinder diesel engine and it is compared with the performance run by pure diesel. The outcomes from the tests demonstrate that nahar oil biodiesel and its mixes can possibly substitute for diesel engine in the ongoing future when non-renewable energy source stores become compromised. BTHE increases significantly with the increase of load whereas the value of thermal efficiency is almost same for the all blends with increment of the load. The power output and fuel consumption of engine is more or less same when engine is driven using nahar oil biodiesel mixes in comparison to diesel.
