Abstract: Energy is a crucial requirement for economic and social improvement of any country. Sky rocketing of fossil fuel prices has lead to rising interest in various alternative fuels like producer gas, CNG, alcoholic fuels, vegetable oils. Producer gas is relatively a low calorific value fuel gas which can be used in compression ignition and spark ignition engines. Producer gas will be generated from any carbonaceous material as well as from different types of biomass. The engine power de-rating is usually 15-30% when producer gas is used in CI engines instead of diesel. It is mainly because of the variation in stoichiometric air/fuel ratio requirements for producer gas and diesel.
Keywords: Biomass, Internal Combustion Engine, Engine Power, Producer Gas.
