Alternate fuels for diesel is promising for diesel engines as petroleum resources are degrading and causing for higher environmental pollution. Properties of Hydrogen peroxide are suitably affecting the performance and emission characteristics. In this paper experimental investigations are carried out on a four stroke single cylinder diesel engine with diesel and hydrogen peroxide blends. Commercially available low concentrated Hydrogen peroxide is blended in different proportions of the volume to the diesel fuel. As specific gravity differs for both the fuels, a magnetic stirrer setup is used for proper mixing of the blend. Addition of 15% Hydrogen peroxide to the diesel has shown the highest Brake thermal efficiency and specific fuel consumption. 5% Hydrogen peroxide- diesel blend has shown lower HC emissions.
Keywords- Hydrogen peroxide, magnetic stirrer setup, Brake thermal efficiency, specific fuel consumption, emissions.
