Abstract :

Diesel engines are widely used in heavy duty applications like transportation, power generation etc. but  the quantity of diesel is limited in the world. So the price of diesel increased as the use of diesel increased day by day. With increase in use of these fossil fuels environmental problem is one of the issues which are  increased day by day. These environmental concern and limited quantity of fuels have caused interests in the search  for alternative fuels for IC engine. This paper represents the effect of varying load and effect of catalytic converter with  urea on performance and emission of diesel engine using WPO diesel blend in different proportion. Experiment was  carried out by taking 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% WPO diesel blend with constant injection pressure. Experimental results  shows that SFC decreases with increase in load but ME and BTE increases in all blend and 20% WPO diesel blend has  minimum SFC and higher BTE and ITE compare to diesel fuel but little increase in NOX and HC emission. Emission results show that emission of HC, NOX and CO2 increases with increase in load. With compare to diesel Emission of CO  and CO2 is lower in 20% blend and emission of NOX and HC is little higher. So catalytic converter with urea is being  used to control the emission of these harmful gases and run the engine with 20% WPO Diesel blend to get optimum  performance and emission. So diesel engine can be run at 20% WPO diesel blend with proper catalytic converter.
