Retrofitting Diesel Engine Generators for a Sustainable Environment

Authors : M.A. Aderibigbe, S.T. Wara and A.E. Airoboman

Abstract: Diesel Generator Sets (DGS) are used to generate electric power. Although, diesel engine generators have high efficiency, high torque and outstanding longevity but at the same time polluting the environment with toxic air pollutants such as Particulate Matters (PM), Oxide of Nitrogen (NOx), etc. This study has investigated the effect of retrofitting a 15 kVA DGS using Retrofitted Diesel Fuel (RDF) and Pure Diesel Fuel (PDF). The datas obtained were used in matlab environment in the generation of codes and the codes were eventually used to obtain the corresponding mathematical models and the results obtained were interpreted graphically in the matlab environment. By retrofitting there will be an improvement in climate change, ozone depletion and global warming due to gradual reduction in PM, sharp reduction in CO and an improvement in NOx emission for sustainable environment.
