Impact of ETBE Fraction in Diesel Oil on Combustion Process and Smoke Emission

&
In this paper we would like to present selected results of our research carried out with use of a Perkins AD3.152 diesel engine fueled with diesel oil (DO) with addition of ethyl tert¬butyl ether (ETBE). Tested blends were composed by mixing of diesel oil with ETBE in ratio of: 10, 20, 30 and 40% by volume. Results of our tests confirm, that decreasing cetane number (CN) of diesel¬ETBE blends increase the value of self¬ignition delay...
