Abstract


Objective: To analyze the performance and emission characteristics on variable compression ratio diesel engine using Calophyllum inophyllum biodiesel blends at various compression ratios. Method/Statistical Analysis: Blends of Calophyllum inophyllum biodiesel and diesel blends are prepared to use as fuel on variable compression ratio diesel engine. Finding: The variations on performance parameters like brake specific fuel consumption, brake thermal efficiency and exhaust emissions like nitric oxides, hydro carbon, carbon monoxide are assessed and analyzed. The experimental results showed reduction in brake thermal efficiency, nitric oxide and increase in brake specific fuel consumption, carbon monoxide, hydro carbon with Calophyllum inophyllum biodiesel blends than neat diesel.

Keywords
