Further Development of an On-Board Distillation System for Generating a Highly Volatile Cold-Start Fuel 2005-01-0233

The On-Board Distillation System (OBDS) extracts, from gasoline, a highly volatile crank fuel that enables simultaneous reduction of start-up fuel enrichment and significant ignition timing retard during cold-starting. In a previous paper we reported reductions in catalyst light-off time of >50% and THC emissions reductions >50% over Phase I of the FTP drive cycle.
The research presented herein is a further development of the OBDS concept. For this work, OBDS was improved to yield higher-quality start-up fuel. The PCM calibration was changed as well, in order to improve the response to intake manifold pressure transients. The test vehicle was tested over the 3-phase FTP, with exhaust gases speciated to determine NMOG and exhaust toxics emissions. Also, the effectiveness of OBDS at generating a suitable starting fuel from a high driveability index test gasoline was evaluated.
The key benefits attributable to the use of the OBDS with the improved calibrations were reductions in NMOG and CO emissions of 81% and 87%, respectively, over the FTP drive cycle. Additionally, catalyst light-off time was reduced by 55%.
