Production and Performance Enrichment of Biodiesel from Mustard Oil and Blend with Different Volume of Diesel
The experimental investigations were carried out on a compression ignition engine to determine the performance of biodiesel produced from mustard oil and blends with diesel. The properties of Biodiesel blends has been tested in the laboratory and used to determine the performance of the engine parameters such as brake specific fuel consumption (bsfc), Brake horse power (bhp), brake thermal efficiency, brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) and exhaust gas temperature for various loading conditions. The biodiesel was blended with diesel by various volume levels like B20, B30, B40, B50 and B100. The experimental results of biodiesel blends are validated with diesel as fuel.
