Characterization of SiC-DPF for Passenger Car 2000-01-0185
In Europe, where diesel engine cars enjoy widely popularity, the major diesel-engine car manufacturers have already announced that they will equip their diesel engine vehicles with DPF systems. Silicon carbide(SiC) has good fundamental properties. And the crack problem during regeneration could be successfully controlled by using split-type DPF which consists of multiple filter segments. The functional characteristics were focused on. For DPF, a model test by which events that may actually occur on vehicles can be produced is said to have not yet been established. From this point of view, in this study, SiC-DPF functions are characterized and evaluated under a regeneration system, and their correlation is discussed.
