Abstract— With the rising population worldwide, energy consumption has been increased in the last few decades. To fulfill this energy consumption demand more inclination is towards conventional coal or thermal sources of energy generation. With their continuous use they will not be available in future for long time. In order to meet this increasing energy demand and supply of fuel, renewable energy sources are found to be the best alternatives. The biogas is one of the sources of renewable energy, consisting of approximately 55-60 % of methane which can be burned to produce heat and electricity, and many other operations using an internal combustion engine, for the conversion of biogas into both electricity and heat. The harmful emissions from burning of methane are reduced and keep the environment clean. In this paper performance and emission characteristics of IC engine using blends of rice bran oil and its bio-diesel with biogas as fuel in normal mode of operation under different engine test conditions are studied and discussed.
Keywords— Biogas, Biodiesel, Electrical power, Rice bran oil.
