Model-based OBD for Three-Way Catalyst Systems 2004-01-0639

In this paper, we review previous approaches to oxygen-related OBD strategies and then discuss the use of a new model-based approach together with a distribution-free statistical testing strategy for fault detection. The method is illustrated using experimental pre- and post-catalyst data for which a simplified catalyst-plus-sensor model has been developed. By monitoring the distribution of prediction errors between the ‘healthy’ model output, and the actual catalyst response even small levels of oxygen storage degradation can be detected with a high degree of confidence.
