Investigation Of The Effect Of Zinc Nanoparticles (Zno) On The Ac Breakdown Voltage And Acidity Index Of Based Nanofluid On Methyl Ester Of Palm Kernel Oil

[Full Text]






Breakdown voltage in AC, Acidity Index, Methyl esters of Palm Kernel Oil, ZnO.



In this paper, we address the influence of zinc (ZnO) nanoparticles (NPs) on the AC breakdown voltage (BDV) and acid number (AI) of palm kernel oil methyl esters (MEPKO). To determine this impact, several samples with different concentrations of NPs are prepared by homogenizing the mixtures with an ultrasonic homogenizer. The measurements of breakdown voltage and acidity index are made respectively from the ASTM D1816 and IEC 296 standards. These measurements are made both before and after the addition of zinc nanoparticles. The results obtained allow us to conclude that the acidity index of the MEPKO increases by 320% for a concentration of 0.10% ZnO. For concentrations of 0.15% and 0.20% ZnO, there is an increase of 183% and 116% with respect to the AI of the MEPKO For BDV, there is a recovery of 8% and 3% for 0, 10% and 0.15% ZnO concentrations respectively. For a concentration of 0.20% ZnO, there is a 9% increase in the BDV of MEPKO. This analysis shows that the addition of ZnO to MEPKO has a negative impact on their AI. This is not the case for their BDV which are at two concentrations (0.10% and 0.15%) decreases before increasing for the concentration of 0.20% ZnO.
