Performance evaluation of Yuchai Engine working with Biodiesel.
June 15, 2013
At the present work, the authors obtain the engine outer velocity characterization working with Biodiesel and its mixtures, and show the chemical composition of the exhaust gases respect to NOx. Is observed a decrease in the engine performance when the Biodiesel per cent is growing. This behaviour must be due to the lower heat power for Biodiesel respect to Diesel. They obtain a 40% decrease in the NOx formation respect to Diesel and it is developed an analysis of the reasons of that. Finally they propose the optimized mixture for the use in an internal combustion engine, about the 20% of Biodiesel, because this is the equilibrium between contamination and engine performance.
