A Diesel Lean Nox Trap Model for Control Strategy Verification 2004-01-0526
Lean NOx traps are considered as a possible means to reduce diesel powertrain tail pipe NOx emissions to future stringent limits. Several publications have proposed models for lean NOx traps [1, 2, 3 and 4]. This paper focuses on a lean NOx trap model that can be used for the verification of control strategies before these strategies are implemented in target microprocessors. Strategy verification in a simulation environment is a crucial tool for reducing control strategy development and implementation time.
