ABSTRACT
One of the most straightforward and affordable ways to produce hydrogen is by alkaline water electrolysis. In order to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen, an electrolyser is often subjected to current levels of 1.23V. The electrodes in an electrolytic cell are the primary structural component. The cathode electrode type is the one where hydrogen is created via the reduction reaction between the two types of electrodes. LPG is combined with hydrogen at a 4:1 ratio to lower the combustion energy because hydrogen cannot be used directly in a traditional SI engine due to its higher energy production during combustion. With the aid of a vaporizer unit, the hydrogen and LPG are combined in the necessary ratio. Through the bypass line created on the input manifold before the carburettor, where air is also mixed with the hydrogen-LPG fuel with the A/F ratio of 17:1 (stoichiometric ratio) for complete combustion, the fuel mixture is transported to the engine's combustion chamber. Due to the usage of LPG and hydrogen, full combustion may occur as a result of the production of a blue flame during combustion. Better mixing of the fuel and air can be achieved since the fuel mixture is conveyed in va-por state instead of semi-liquid form as in a conventional SI engine. This approach of using mix fuel (LPG+H2) for con-ventional SI engines can lower nitrogen oxide and hydrocarbon values in the exhaust gas more effectively.
