Abstract

The drastic hype in fuel consumption and oil price hike in world market, people around the world intended to move towards the alternative source of energy like biomass for cooking. Many cook stove programmes were implemented in the world aiming to reduce the fuel consumption as well as pollutants through improved biomass cook stoves. Many improved cook stoves have the maximum efficiency with higher level of fuel consumption due to its higher burning rate. In this paper an attempt has been made to improve the thermal efficiency by reducing heat losses mean time in reduced specific fuel consumption. The pollutants emitted by the improved stove is extremely reduced by proper supply of air for combustion. Since advanced cook stove is made to operate at different geographical region, should be harmonious to the use of different fuels. The newly developed ACS IES-15 stove is tested with coconut shell and the result is compared with existing (TERI SPT-0610) stove commercially available in the market at higher thermal efficiency (37%). Testing procedure is followed as per the world standard testing protocol WBT 4.2.3 to evaluate the performance of these stoves and analysed in terms of efficiency and specific fuel consumption.
