“KATPROG” for the Determination of an Optimal Cost Effective Catalyst System 2001-26-0016
An two-dimensional axial symmetrical finite volume model will be introduced for the calculation of catalytic converters. It is able to predict transient temperatures and conversion rates in different converter systems according to the driving conditions. Input data are the mass-flow rate, the converter inlet temperature and the raw emissions.
The performance of this model is demonstrated on an Indian motorcycle application. Cold start behavior and peak temperatures are investigated.
This model has proven to be an effective tool for the preselection of an optimal cost effective catalyst system.
