Design and Testing of Adsorption Column for PSA Process for CI Engine Performance and Emission
The C I engines are commonly used applications made by engineering researchers. It has an effective efficiency of 30–35%, which suggests that just about seventieth percent of the energy within the fuel is lost within the exhaust gases, within the coolant, and in incomplete combustion of fuel and as radiation. Use of oxygen-enriched air in compression ignition engines has potential for low exhausts emission and particulate maters. There are various methods and experiments are developed in the field of reducing the emissions in the IC engines. There is no any other better technology for complete combustion and zero emissions from the engine. Oxygen enriched combustion is one of the attractive combustion technology to control pollution also it helps to improve the performance of the engine. Oxygen enrichment is achieved by the PSA system. PSA means Pressure Swing Adsorption which work on cyclic adsorption process for generation and purification of air. A PSA process has been alternative for different gas separations process. In the present work PSA System is developed using Zeolite and tested for CI Engine performance and emission at different load conditions. Its observed that PSA system improves BSFC, BTE and reduces HC and Smoke while resulting in increases in NOx formation.
