Performance and Emission Characteristics of Oxy Hydrogen Gas on a Three Cylinder Four Stroke Petrol Engine

Nikhil Narayan, Vanangamudi, P. Naveenchandran


Abstract: Petroleum crisis is a great bottleneck in the supply of crude oil resources to an economy which calls for an alternative and indispensable fuel. But alternative options to petroleum fuel are having many restrictions. An electric car has a limited range and long charging time and compressed air driven cars cannot be used where high torque is required or using hydrogen as fuel requires very costly storage equipments. Amongst many alternative fuels available oxy hydrogen gas is under study in this research workbox hydrogen gas, which is enriched mixture of hydrogen and oxygen bonded together molecularly and magnetically, this producer gas can emerge as best alternative fuels in the upcoming future. Oxy-hydrogen gas is produced by electrolysis of water using caustic soda or KOH as a catalyst. Presence of oxy-hydrogen gas during combustion process decreases the brake specific fuel consumption and also increases the brake thermal efficiency. Water is one of the by-products of the combustion process which also decreases the temperature of the combustion process. It is safe to use oxy-hydrogen gas as it cannot be stored but can be produced within few seconds after ignition and can be switched on and off. All together it has been observed that the blend of oxy-hydrogen gas and petrol instead of only conventional fuel improves the performance of the engine up to 20 % and consequently reduction in emission gases such as Carbon Monoxide and Hydrocarbons.
