In addition, indicated horse power, break mean effective pressure and specific fuel consumption calculated from the experiments.
The results from the first experiment shown that, the best engine performance for indicated pressure (IP), indicated horse power (IHP), shaft horse power (SHP), break horse power (BHP) and break mean effective pressure (BMEP) were obtained at 220 bar and the best engine SFC is obtained at 200 bar or current fuel injection pressure.
The results from the second experiment on fixed engine speed and variation engine loads shown that, increasing injection pressure have given that in engine performance is increased for indicated pressure(IP), indicated horse power (IHP), shaft horse power (SHP), break horse power (BHP) and break mean effective pressure (BMEP).
