Using biogas in internal combustion engines started from 1940s and till now a lot of progress has been made to cope with biogas specifications. Here through detailed literature review, the challenges such as lower flame speed (compared to natural gas) and biogas impurities are studied; combustion characteristics of biogas in reciprocating engines are investigated. Solutions and lessons learnt such as advancing spark timing, increasing compression ratio, changing the bearing and piston materials… CONTINUE READING
