Keywords Diesel, Zinc oxide nano particle alternate fuel.


The world at present is confronted with the twin crisis of fossil fuel depletion and environmental degradation. Increase in energy demand, stringent emission norms and depletion of oil resources have led the researchers to find alternative fuels for internal combustion engines. Various alternative fuels like CNG and LPG have been commercialised all over the world. The objective of this project is to analyze the possible effects of adding nano particles with diesel. The project is conceived after understanding the real need to improve the efficiency of the diesel engine without influencing the emissions to a severe degree. The nano particles are using for project is Zinc Oxide and Copper oxide, this project involves two separate tests on same composition of these nano particles with the values of diesel used as a reference. In the present work, experimental investigations have been carried out on using ZnO nano particle with diesel. The present work mainly focuses on comparing the different nano particles with diesel to improve the performance of compression ignition engine. In phase II we take another nano particle was to take to investigate to improve the performance of DI Diesel engine.
