Abstract

The study of this project are emphasizes on the combustion analysis of the alternative fuels. Themain objective of this project is to have the alternative fuels characteristic for internal combustion engine such as Methyl Esther Palm oil, corn oil and used vegetable oil. At the ends of the project, the result from the studies show that the alternative fuels with specific mixing ratio at40% diesel with 60% oil is the best choice for the usage of internal combustion engine. The combustion analysis can be achieved by using laboratory equipment such as bomb calorimeter to measure the calorific value. The density and viscosity of each oil can be measure using Brookfield viscometer. From the combustion laboratory unit, the study in effect ofAir Fuel Ratio (AFR) v. Exhaust as constituent, AFR v. colour flame, its shape and movement can be achieved. Using the exhaust gas analyser, the study inemission of different alternative fuels such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxide of nitrogen, hydrocarbons (HC) and particulate matter (PM) canbe achieved. Before beginning the study ofthe combustion analysis, the general nature ofcombustion and fuels should be discuss. Then those aspects of fuels properties, thermodynamics, and chemical kinetics which will be used throughout the project are reviewed. The experimental procedures of each of the experiment are developed as a guide before proceeding to the laboratory experiment work.
