Biomass gasifiers are equipment’s that can generate producer gas which is a renewable, alternate source of energy that can be employed for power generation and thermal applications. In this experimental study the gasifier is tested in updraft and downdraft modes and performance analysis was carried out. For both the studies, casuarina wood and ambient air were used as feed stock and gasification agent respectively. From the experimental analysis it was inferred that the performance of the biomass gasifier was higher in downdraft mode than updraft mode.
