present study investigates the performance, combustion and emission
characteristics results of a 5.5 kW constant speed diesel engine, which was
modified to run with both diesel and CNG fuel (diesel+CNG) under combined mode
condition. The experiment was conducted with CR: 19.5:1at maximum power
condition (at 1500 rpm and 5.5 kW). The brake thermal efficiency (BTE) of the
engine was found lower at all different energy ratio, in comparison to diesel
fuel (0% energy ratio). The deteriorations in BTE of the engine was observed at
30%, 46% and 51% of gaseous fuel energy ratio under combined mode operation.
The engine powered by CNG-Diesel showed lower CO2 and Smoke.However, it showed higher Carbon monoxide,
Hydrocarbon and Nitric oxide emissions as compared to diesel fuel.
