Abstract

Biodiesel is a fatty acid alkyl ester which is renewable, biodegradable and non toxic fuel which can be derived from any vegetable oil by transesterification process. In the present investigation, Simarouba oil based methyl ester (SOME) is produced by using a mixture of Sodium Hydroxide and Disodium Hydrogen ortho Phosphate, a mixed base catalyst by transesterification process. The properties of SOME thus obtained are comparable with ASTM biodiesel standards. The produced SOME is blended with diesel (Biodiesel- B10, B20, B30 and B100) were tested for their use as a substitute fuel for diesel engine. Tests have been conducted at different blends of biodiesel with standard diesel, at an engine speed of 1500 rpm, fixed compression ratio 17.5, fixed injection pressure of 200bar and varying brake power. The performance parameters elucidated includes brake thermal efficiency, brake specific fuel consumption, exhaust gas temperature, Carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), Hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions against varying Brake Power(BP).
