Syngas from Updraft Gasifier Incineration for Internal Combustion Engine Power Generation in Klongluang PathumThani Thailand
Faculty of Industrial Technology Vallaya Alongkorn Rajabhat University 1 Moo 20 TambolKlongnueng Amphoe Klongluang PathumThani, Thailand
This paper presents the internal combustion engine power generation using syngas from the updraft biomass gasifier as a fuel. 3 types of fuel such as Golden shower tree wood chip, charcoal, and gasohol 91 were tested for the engine running. The experiment was performed on July 25-26, 2017 at Faculty of Industrial Technology Vallaya Alongkorn Rajabhat University Pathum Tani Thailand. Data on the performance of the engines fueled with producer gas and gasohol 91 is presented. The experiment was carried out by using a four-stroke 13 HP gasoline engine coupled with a generator as a load in producing electricity. The carburetor was modified for fuel gas running by loading 7 kg/batch of Golden shower chips and charcoal for syngas producing and the engine performance was measured. The results showed that, the engine power was 110.125 W, 115.425 W, and 128.038 W, while using a golden shower chip, charcoal, and gasohol 91 as the fuel, respectively. The generator efficiency is 80% therefore the generator power reduces 20%. The test indicated that golden shower chips could produce higher quality of syngas than charcoal but the engine power has less power than fueled with gasohol 91.
