Abstract(summary):

This work aims at evaluating the performance, emission and combustion of a diesel engine fuelled with WCO (waste cooking oil obtained from palm oil) and its emulsion as fuel. A single cylinder water-cooled diesel engine was used. Base data was generated with diesel and neat WCO as fuels. Subsequently, WCO oil was converted into its emulsion and tested. Neat WCO resulted in higher smoke, hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions as compared to neat diesel. Significant reduction in all emission was achieved with the WCO emulsion. Cylinder peak pressure and maximum rate of pressure rise were found to be higher with WCO emulsion as compared to neat WCO mainly at high power outputs. Ignition delay was found as higher with neat WCO and its emulsion. It is concluded that WCO emulsion can be used in diesel engines without any modifications in the engine with superior performance and reduced emissions at high power outputs.
