Fuel Quality Analysis for Biogas Utilization in Heavy Duty Dual Fuel Engines
Conference poster, 2012
The perspective of using gas form biomass gasification as fuel for dual fuel (DF) engines, without refine it all the way to synthetic natural gas (SNG) has been investigated. The initial gas from gasification contains of a blend of various components which are not commonly present in natural gas (NG). The operability of these components in a heavy duty DF engine has been assessed and compared to those of NG. Three parameters have been used to define the quality of the fuel: Lower Heating Value (LHV), Methane Number (MN) and Lower Flammability Limit (LFL).
