TL;DR: In this article, the application of rice bran oil-based biofuels to diesel engines was completely analyzed and critically discussed based on engine performance, combustion, and emissions characteristics.
Abstract: The drastic rise in global warming and the fossil fuel consumption have resulted in destruction of the ecological balance, reduction of the environmental quality, and demotion of the sustainable development. The utilization of biofuels have been paid much attention to by researchers and policy makers due to its benefits and indisputable contributions to protect the living environment. Free fatty acid-rich rice bran oil which is unsuitable for food purposes could be a good candidate for biofuel production. Accordingly, rice bran oil-based biofuels (straight oil and its biodiesel) as promising alternative fuels to petrodiesel were reviewed in this article from the sources, components, and physicochemical perspectives. In addition, biodiesel production from rice bran oil using various methods and catalysts was thoroughly detailed. The oxidative stability of rice bran biodiesel as a function of the storage time was also discussed. The application of rice bran oil-based biofuels to diesel engines was completely analyzed and critically discussed based on engine performance, combustion, and emissions characteristics. The effects of using rice bran oil-based biofuels on the lubricating oil degradation, deposit formation, wear, and sound intensity of diesel engines were explained in detail. Finally, the economic aspects of using rice bran oil and its biodiesel as fuels were also assessed. As a conclusion, the blend containing 20% rice bran oil biodiesel and 80% petrodiesel fuel, both in volume, could be the most effective composition considering the techno-economic aspects of diesel engines; meanwhile the remaining blends appeared to be improper for the existing diesel engines.

TL;DR: In this paper , a review article mainly focuses on the layers of microgrid, different techniques involved in DSM, mathematical models of DSM, latest optimization techniques and application of storage devices such as battery energy storage system and EVs in DSM.
Abstract: In a deregulated power system, Demand Side Management (DSM) plays a vital role in handling the uncertain renewable power generation and load. The flat load-profile can be obtained using the Demand Response (DR) techniques with the storage elements and proper switching. The increasing penetration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Electric Vehicles (EVs) supports the DR measures which facilitate both the utility and the consumer. The objective of DSM is to minimize the peak demand, electricity cost and emission rate by the effective utilization of storage with RES. This review article mainly focuses on the layers of microgrid, different techniques involved in DSM, mathematical models of DSM, latest optimization techniques and application of storage devices such as battery energy storage system and EVs in DSM. The state of the art of this article lies on the critical analysis related to datascience, advanced metering infrastructure and blockchain technologies which are the uniqueness of this article. The key issues and approaches are examined critically with the existing works to show how DSM implementation can be effectively done in the microgrids to reduce the electricity cost. This article helps the researchers to identify the research gap by gaining knowledge on the implementation of DSM in the microgrid and the factors affecting the DSM implementation. Few recommendations are discussed to provide future directions for researchers who started working in the DSM implementation.
