Abstract: Experimental investigations were conducted to determine the performance & emission features of a common rail direct injection (CRDI) system using algae biofuel to aid diesel engine. The algae biofuel-diesel blends were taken in two different proportions, B10 & B15 (10% and 15% of algae biofuel is mixed with diesel on a volumetric approach). The tests were conducted on CRDI diesel engine at various injection pressures from 600 to 1050 bar with the difference of 150 bar. From the results it was exposed that at high fuel injection pressure (1050 bar), brake thermal efficiency (BTE) improved and brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) reduced when related with other injection pressures. CO, HC &/smoke density significantly decreases with rise in injection pressures. However, NOx emissions are shown to be increased. At different load conditions, biodiesel algae are associated with higher exhaust gas temperatures.
