Abstract
Research with experimentation was carried out to assess the impact of the addition of nano-sized fuel-borne additives (Al2O3) to a tri-fuel mix consisting of pure diesel, biodiesel made from Jatropa methyl ester, , and diethyl ether (DEE). The combustion, performance, , and emission characteristics of this tri-fuel combination are studied in a compression-ignition engine having a single cylinder. DEE is widely recognized as an ignition improver owing to its higher cetane number , and also serves as a stabilizer for the suspended nanoparticles. The size of Al2O3 nanoparticles was fixed at 25nm, , and concentration is changed from 25ppm to 50ppm in binary diesel/ JME mix. Nanoparticles have a greater surface area/volume ratio, allowing for more efficient combustion , and better engine performance , and emissions. Surfactants Triton-X100 , and Brij58 were selected independently to suspend the nanoparticles in this fuel mix utilizing an ultrasonic liquid processor. The experiment findings indicate that tri-fuel mix with Al2O3 nanoparticles demonstrated 1.25 percent better brake thermal efficiency than neat diesel, decreased NOx emissions by 200ppm than plain diesel. It is also discovered that Brij58 exhibited superior performance compared to triton-X100 surfactant in the refuel mix.
