Abstract
Biodiesel is a renewable fuel which is produced by algae, palm, fruits, seeds, waste oils by transesterification process in the presence of alcohol like methanol or ethanol and catalyst NaOH or KOH. Biodiesel reduce harmful environment affects is less as compare to uses of diesel fuel and it's an eco-friendly fuel. The oil used for the preparation of biodiesel is CANOLA OIL (seed oil).In this research paper, oxidized canola oil biodiesel (OCOB), non-oxidized canola oil biodiesel (NCOD) and diesel fuel are taken under the consideration. Two different fuels were tested in a single cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled, a constant compression ratio (CR) direct injection diesel engine developing a power of 3.7 kW, at a rated speed of 1500 rpm and various performance parameters calculated they are following specific fuel consumption (SFC), fuel consumption, volumetric efficiency ,thermal efficiency and emissions. The data obtain from the experiment compared with the diesel fuel, which tested on same parameter, and same operation condition. The COBD blended in different proportion with pure diesel and diesel consist 25% (BD25), 50% (BD50), and 100% (BD100) of bio diesel fuel and at each stage of blending load is varying The result obtain by the biodiesel indicates significant reduction in specific fuel consumption, volumetric efficiency, CO emission and unburned HC emission. And also represents increasing in thermal efficiency, fuel consumption, CO2 emission, in both cases (NOBD & OBD) on increasing the percentage of blending (BD25, BD50, BD100).The results were compared with blended NOBD and OBD at different ratio with diesel fuel.
