Abstract Concept:
Naturally Aspirated engine runs with the mixture of ambient air and fuel. Turbocharger runs with Pressurized air from the turbo mixing with the fuel to form a more compressed charge for more power. Naturally aspirated Engine is converted to a turbocharged engine fitted with a turbo with the necessary adjustments and checked for performance (BSFC, BMEP, Mechanical Efficiency, Heat Release, etc...)
Abstract Concept:
Naturally Aspirated engine runs with the mixture of ambient air and fuel. Turbocharger runs with Pressurized air from the turbo mixing with the fuel to form a more compressed charge for more power. Attaching a turbo boosts the engine Emissions from the Exhaust. In this Comparative Study we check the change in Emission levels of a turbocharged engine in comparison to a Naturally Aspirated Genset engine
Abstract Concept:
A catalytic converter is an emissions control device that converts toxic pollutants in exhaust gas to less toxic pollutants by catalyzing redox reaction (oxidation or reduction). Off road application requires more power at less speed hence an increase in emissions occurs. Thus here we use a catalytic converter to mark and check different exhaust spots to check for optimum reduction in emission levels.
Abstract Concept:
Exhaust Gas Re-circulation (EGR) reduce NOx emissions. In the exhaust. In diesel engines, it is highly desirable to reduce the amount of NOx in the exhaust gas. Two types of EGR are used: hot, cooled EGR. The EGR is pneumatically controlled. We check the Performance (BSFC, BMEP, Mechanical Efficiency, Heat Release, etc...) and emission (Smoke Level and Amount of HC, NOx, CO, CO2, O2) of the Engine in the process and compare it to an engine in Naturally Aspirated condition.
