This article addresses the issue regarding the exploitation of conventional fuel diesel. To overcome this issue, the Tamanu oil-diesel oil blend is introduced, where a new neural model is proposed, which is trained by renowned firefly algorithm, termed as FF-NM. In addition, different compression ratios such as 15, 16, 17, 17.5 and blend ratios like 5:95, 6:94, 7:93, 8:92, and 9:91and 10:90 is exploited. The emission analysis and the combustion characteristics of the TO-diesel oil blend are evaluated as well as the MSE analysis is carried out for the proposed FF-NM method. For all the predicted parameters, the MSE of the proposed method is low for varying blend as well as the compression ratios. Moreover, the emission characteristics of the HC, CO2, NOx, CO, as well as O2 at different CR concerning the actual, and FF-NM is computed with the chosen blend ratios. From analysis, it is recognized that the estimation errors are less for the FF-NM approach. Hence, the simulation outcomes demonstrate the better performance of the proposed FF-NM approach under various compression ratios of 15, 16, 17 and 17.5, respectively.

2. Literature Review

In 2015, Kumar et al. (2015) examined the performance analysis of a diesel engine as well as the characteristics of emission by varying the compression ratios, and also, they worked on the esterified pinnai oil. They considered several parameters namely pH, time, and the amount of catalyst, temperature, for the creation of biodiesel. In a diesel engine, by inspecting the effectiveness of the proposed blend ratios, the BTE, BSEC, ignition delay combustion duration, and exhaust gas temperature was contemplated.

In 2016, Bora and Saha (2016a) exploited the blended diesel as well as the rice bran oil. The effect of the blended oil diesel was studied in a diesel engine on the basis of the characteristics of the emission, performance as well as combustion, which was with the biogas. Hence, the twofold fuel runs diesel engine comprises a solitary cylinder, direct injection engine, water cooled, normally aspirated, which was run with the chosen ratios of the compressions. In addition, the parameters namely maximum liquid replacement as well as the BTE was exploited as it is the measure for examining the effectiveness of engine.
