Abstract: An experimental research is performed to determine the performance qualities of a variable compression engine at constant speed using copper oxide nanoparticles as being fuel-borne additives in diesel–biodiesel blend. In this research, the effects of adding CuO2 nanoparticles to neochloris oleoabundans methyl ester-diesel blended (B20) fuel on compression-ignition engine had been experimentally investigated. The B20 with 25, 50, 75, and 100ppm dosage of CuO2 nanoparticles were examined at various engine loads and constant engine speed. The fuel blends were labelled as B20, B20+25ppm, B20+50ppm, B20+75ppm and B20+100ppm. Moreover, even without the any engine alterations, the performance properties of those fuel blend samples were investigated through the experimentally measured standards like viscosity, density, cloud point, calorific value and pour point while the engine performance has also been examined through the factors like EGT, BSFC, and BTE. The experimental outcomes show that the use of biodiesel blend along with CuO2 nano particles in diesel fuelled engine has revealed good improvement in performance.
