Looking at the latter, it can be noted that the highest eEGR rates are applied at low speeds and medium-high loads, resulting in a maximum BSFC reduction of 10 g/kWh, that is, about 4% (compare Figure 13b with Figure 14b).
The variation of brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) at different loads is shown in Figure 11.

Further, the HC, CO and smoke emissions increases with increasing antioxidant concentration whereas there is no significant variation in BTE and BSFC [19].

To take into account the effect of engine size on its maximum bsfc, the efficiency maps of Fig.
BSFC is about 0.21 kg/kW hr for 100% diesel and 0.19 kg/kW hr for blend B20 at brake power of 5.54 kW.
Figure 13 clearly shows that the 2-injection pattern could be used to obtain a pollutant emissions reduction, especially in particulate matter, in case an increase in noise levels was acceptable (BSFC remains almost constant with respect to reference condition).
The Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) maps were generated and the load limits for each of the combustion modes were determined.
In this study, we used formulae of Bu Shen Fang Chuan (BSFC) and Bu Shen Yi Qi (BSYQ) as add-on treatments to prevent asthma exacerbation.
For the rule-based control category, "if-else-then" strategies were designed by investigating the performance maps of key components (engine BSFC map and motor efficiency map) [8].
