Semiconductor Gas Sensors as Control Monitors for NOx Storage Catalytic Converters 2002-01-1095

Silicon Carbide (SiC) based high temperature semiconductor gas sensors were tested for potential applications in the closed-loop control of NOx storage catalytic converters. The exhaust gas composition behind a storage catalyst was simulated by synthetic gas mixtures supplied from a gas blending manifold. In lean oxidizing ambients the sensors produced signals opposite in sign upon the appearance of NOx on the one hand and mixtures of HC and CO on the other hand. Transient gas measurements revealed response times ranging between several milliseconds for HC and several seconds for NOx. These features render SiC based sensors potentially useful for the control of NOx storage catalytic converters.
