Thesis Topic/Title
Optimisation of Diesel Engine Combustion Parameters for Biodiesel

Description

Biofuel is increasingly used in diesel engines due to the lower emissions and the option of local production. The current diesel engine is optimised to run with diesel fuel. Using biofuels such as biodiesel in the current commercially available diesel engines produce lower emissions but reduced power compared to standard mineral diesel fuel. This study aims to investigate and optimise the engine performance and emission for biodiesel by modifying some of the combustion parameters such as injection timing, duration and injection pressure to suit the new fuel. The expected outcomes from this study are less engine emission and enhanced engine performance when tuned for biodiesel fuel.
