Abstract: This paper represents the relative performance of a small single-cylinder diesel engine having capacity 3.5 kW. This paper covers experimental investigations of most influencing combustion parameters such as compression ratio, injection pressure and start of injection timing and their values on performance, emission and combustion characteristic of the small single-cylinder CRDI diesel engine for which the mechanical fuel injection system retrofitted with a simple version of the CRDI system. CRDI has yielded good results for large diesel and petrol engines but still not incorporate for cheaper small single-cylinder engines, typically used in the agricultural sector and decentralized power sector for a country like India. It is observed that starts of injection timing and injection pressure are the key parameters for improving the combustion characteristics and therefore engine performance while compression ratio mainly affects the emission characteristics of the engine. Retrofitted CRDI system yielded improved exhaust emission and performance of the engine.
