Emission Characteristics Investigation of Single Cylinder VCR Diesel Engine using Calophyllum inophyllum Biodiesel Blends as Fuel

Raahul Krishna, Ashish G. Bandewar, Vinod K. Patil


This work presents experimental investigation on a single cylinder vertical diesel engine with Calophyllum inophyllum (Undi) biodiesel blends. Experiments were conducted using pure diesel, 25, 50 and 75% blends by varying the compression ratio, and the exhaust emission characteristics obtained using a computerized exhaust gas analyzer are presented here. From the results obtained, it was concluded that the biodiesel blends had equivalent emission characteristics with no modifications in the VCR engine.

Keywords: VCR diesel engine, biodiesel, Calophyllum inophyllum (Undi) oil
