The Effect of Oxygenated Diesel Blends on Combustion Process and Performance Parameters in a Single Cylinder Diesel Engine 2009-01-1681

Though there are different chemicals used in oxygenated diesels, their high level blending has its own disadvantages. For this investigation, three compounds were selected on the basis of their oxygen level and flash point [1]. These low level blends are tested in a single cylinder naturally aspirated direct injection diesel engine. Performance of the blended diesel compared with the performance of pure diesel. The influence of the blended diesel on power, brake thermal efficiency, cylinder peak pressure, smoke level and particulate matter are studied. From the tests it was concluded that 2-Ethoxy Ethanol performs better in terms of both emission and efficiency.
