Experimental and Modelling Study of Variable Cycle Time for a Reversing Flow Catalytic Converter for Natural Gas/Diesel Dual Fuel Engines 2000-01-0213

This paper presents an investigation of a reverse flow catalytic converter attached to a diesel/natural gas dual fuel engine. Experimental data were obtained in a ceramic monolith catalytic converter with a palladium based catalyst. A variety of flow reversal cycle times were explored experimentally when the engine load was changed from a high load to a low load. A single channel numerical model was developed for the data set and the effect of reverse flow cycle time was studied using both physical and numerical model systems. The duration of the cycle time is shown to be an important parameter in the operation of the converter. Shorter cycle times produced the least fluctuation in reactor temperature and gave the highest time-averaged conversion. Intermediate cycle times gave the most rapid increase in the maximum reactor temperature.
