Effect of Oxygenated Agent Addition to Diesel Fuels on Diesel Combustion and Emissions
Published July 18, 1995 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Effect of oxygenated agent addition to diesel fuel on diesel combustion and emissions was investigated. As a result, oxygenated agent addition to diesel fuel resulted in a slight change of NOx, a decrease in CO and THC, and significant reduction of smoke and TPM specially in a higher load range. The reduction of smoke and TPM was explained approximately by an increase in oxygen content in fuels almost independent of kinds of oxygenated agents. Also, oxygenated agent addition showed a slight increase in BSFC (g/kW-h), but didn't show a change in BSEC (MJ/kW-h). This means that the thermal efficiency remained unchanged with addition of oxygenated agent into diesel fuel
