Abstract:   (1067 Views)

Among human activities, motor vehicles play the most important role in air pollution. Air pollution has negative impacts on people and on the environment. In this paper the effect of oxygen-enriched air (20.8%, 21.8%, 22.8%, 23.8% and 24.8%) and different bioethanol-gasoline blends (zero, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25%) in different engine speeds (1000 rpm, 2000 rpm and 3000 rpm) on the amount of pollutants, particles, and fuel consumption were studied. To do so, a four-cylinder, four-stroke gasoline engine with Siemens fueling system was used. The results showed that when oxygen percentage in the inlet increased from 20.8% to 24.8%, the average amount of UHC, CO, fuel consumption and the number of fine and coarse particles decreased 126.75%, 11.25%, 17.02%, 77.37% and 243.25%, respectively, while the amount of CO2 and NOX increased 5.36% and 113.27%, respectively. Also the results showed that when bioethanol percentage in the mixture increased from zero to 25%, the average amount of UHC, CO2, CO and the number of fine and coarse particles decreased 104.53%, 3.45%, 34.57%, 41.42% and 96.09%, respectively, while the amount of NOX and fuel consumption increased 163.41% and 15.75%, respectively.
