    Abstract :

    The energy strategy of a country aims at efficiency and security and to provide access which being environment friendly and achievement of an optimum mix of primary resources for energy generation. Fossil fuels will continue to play a dominant role in the energy scenario in our country in the next few decades. However, conventional or fossil fuel resources are limited, non-renewable, polluting and, therefore, need to be used prudently. On the other hand, renewable energy resources are indigenous, non-polluting and virtually inexhaustible. India is endowed with abundant renewable energy resources. Therefore, their use should be encouraged in every possible way. The crude oil price has been fluctuating in the world market and has increased significantly in the recent past, reaching a level of more than $ 140 per barrel. Such unforeseen escalation of crude oil prices is severely straining various economies the world over, particularly those of the developing countries. India’s energy security would remain vulnerable until alternative fuels to substitute/supplement petro-based fuels are developed based on indigenously produced renewable feedstocks. In biofuels, the country has a ray of hope in providing energy security. Biofuels are environment friendly fuels and their utilization would address global concerns about containment of carbon emissions. The transportation sector has been identified as a major polluting sector. Use of biofuels have, therefore, becomes compelling in view of the tightening automotive vehicle emission standards to curb air pollution. For the very existence of internal combustion engine in the wide spread as they do now, it is renewable, sustainable and alternative fuel i.e. biodiesel instead of diesel has been increasingly fuelled to study its effects on engine performances and emissions in the recent two decades. In the present work, the performance and emissions of diesel and diesel blended with waste vegetable oil (cooking oil) plus palm staerin is studied, where the fuel, namely, waste vegetable oil biodiesel with palm staerin and diesel were chosen and used as fuel in the form of blends. This work presents the experimental investigation carried on computerized four stroke single cylinder diesel engine with variable compression ratio and variable injection pressure for diesel-(wco + ps)biodiesel blends.
