Effect of Corn Oil Methyl Ester and Exhaust Gas Recirculation on Per-formance and Emission Characteristics of Diesel Engine
Keywords:Corn oil methyl ester, exhaust gas recirculation, oxides of nitrogen, performance, emissions
The current research work on the effect of exhaust gas recirculation on the diesel engine for the analysis of performance and emission characteristics with corn oil methyl ester blends. The engine was tested with three fuels are 100diesel, 20B (20%COME + 80% Diesel) and 40B (40%COME + 60% Diesel) with EGR condition of 0% and 20% rate. The engine was evaluated with performance characteristics such as thermal efficiency, brake specific fuel consumption, exhaust gas temperature and emissions such as carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon and oxides of nitrogen. The analysed results of the brake thermal efficiency was reduced with increased brake specific consumption and the exhaust emissions are decreased with increase of biodiesel blend and increased EGR rate.
