Thermal Analysis of Electrically Heated Catalyst to reduce Cold Start Emission from Gasoline engine 2001-01-1845

This paper deals with the development and performance of the Low Mass Electrically Heated Catalytic (LMEHMC) converter with copper oxide as a catalyst in a spark-ignition (SI), gasoline-fueled engine. It is found that the LMEHMC reduces cold-start hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emission, when used with existing catalytic converter. From this, the potential of catalytic systems with copper oxide as catalyst is analyzed.
