Abstract

In Indonesia, the use of biomass as an alternative fuel offers promising potential when compared to LPG gas, Biomass stove technology has significant potential in utilizing renewable energy more efficiently. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of adding primary air ducts and fuel variations on the thermal efficiency of the stove and determine the type of fuel on input power. The analysis method used is the analysis of the Water Boiling Test (WBT) experiment. Based on the results of the study, testing the input power value on a biomass stove without a tube and with the addition of a primary air tube resulted in an input value of 40,1 kw and the lowest value resulted from a variation of a tubeless stove with coconut shell fuel with a value of 2,71 kw. By testing the output power value on a biomass stove without a tube and with the addition of a primary air tube produced the best output value of 1,53 kw and the lowest value was produced from a variety of
tubeless stoves with coconut shell fuel with a value of 0,10 kw. And thermal efficiency testing on biomass stoves, with the addition of primary air tubes produces the best thermal efficiency value of 4,96% and the lowest thermal efficiency obtained from the variety of stoves without additional
primary air tubes with coconut shell fuel, which is 3,36 %.
