Abstract :

The energy demand is increasing due to ever-increasing number of vehicles employing internal combustion engines. The world today is facing twin crisis of fossil fuel deflection and environmental degradation. Fossil fuels are limited resources & hence, search for renewable fuels is becoming more and more prominent issue of ensuring energy security and environmental protection. Energy from biomass and more specific bio diesel is one of the opportunities that could cover the future energy demand. The bio diesel is prepared from vegetable oil. Vegetable oil can be directly used in compression ignition engines. However, their performance is inferior to diesel. This is due to high viscosity and carbon residue. The performance of vegetable oil can be improved by transesterification them. In this percent work, an attempt has been made to analyze the effect of Jamun seed oil at different proportions of biodiesel (B20, B40, B60, B80 and B100) in a single cylinder, four stroke water-cooled, and diesel engine at 1500rpm. The measured performance parameters are brake thermal efficiency, specific fuel consumption and engine exhaust emission of CO, HC, NOx and smoke density. Significant improvements in performance parameters and exhaust emissions have observed by the addition of Jamun seed oil blends with diesel.
