Performance and Emission Characteristics of Poppy Seed Oil Diesel Blends on Single Cylinder Four Stroke Diesel Engine
G. Lasya, DR. B. Chandra Mohan Reddy
Now a day, decreasing of fossil fuels and their effects on environment lead to conduct performance test on alternative fuels sources, one of the alternative fuels is vegetable oil i.e., poppy seed oil. The performance test was conducted on pure diesel and blends of poppy seed oil and diesel at different proportions in single cylinder four stroke diesel engine with rope dynamometer at different loads. Their effects on engine performance and emission characteristics were studied. It was observed that B25 blend is more efficient.
