Performance Analysis of Exhaust Gas Calorimeter for Diesel Engine
Hemantbhai M Patel,  Dipak C Gosai,  Ashish J Modi
A four stroke diesel engine in which water & diesel coolant are used as a reference in this study. The experiments are conducted with the purpose to test the applicability of exhaust gas calorimeter model in order to quantify the heat losses through exhaust gas. The model considered the calorimeter system components such as water reservoir, pipe for water in and out as a cold fluid and pipe connected from exhaust tail pipe to the calorimeter for the hot fluid. It is very important for I.C. Engine to find out optimum mass flow rate of cooling water & to avoid overheating of the engine & under cooling of the engine. so with this minimum fuel consumption take place by the I.C. Engine so for achieving this concept it is very important for optimization of mass flow rate of cooling water fabricate/design exhaust gas calorimeter. It is important to evaluate energy losses in the engine in order to increase the engine performance. The result showed that the rate of heat losses through the exhaust gas is increased with the increasing of engine speed. This is due to the fact that when the engine speed increase, the throttle opening will also increase in order to allow more mass of air entering the cylinder during combustion. Consequently, the mass of fuel also will be increased and affect the exhaust gas temperature. I am going to investigate about the rate of heat losses from through exhaust gas using exhaust gas calorimeter.
