Study of 2-LEG NOx Storage-Reduction Catalyst System for HD Diesel Engine 2006-01-0211

A 2-LEG NOx Storage-Reduction (NSR) catalyst system is one of potential after-treatment technology to meet stringent NOx and PM emissions standards as Post New Long Term (Japanese 2009 regulation) and US'10.
Concerning NOx reduction using NSR catalyst, a secondary fuel injection is necessary to make fuel-rich exhaust condition during the NOx reduction, and causes its fuel penalty. Since fuel injected in the high-temperature (∼250 degrees Celsius) exhaust instantly reacts with oxygen in common diesel exhaust, the proportion of fuel consumption to reduce the NOx stored on NSR catalyst is relatively small. A 2-LEG NSR catalyst system has the decreasing exhaust flow mechanism during NOx reduction, and the potential to improve the NOx reduction and fuel penalty. Therefore, this paper studies the 2-LEG NSR catalyst system. The after-treatment system consists of NSR catalysts, a secondary fuel injection system, flow controlled valves and a Catalyzed Diesel Particulate Filter (CDPF).
The relationship between NOx reductions and fuel penalties is investigated on several steady-state engine operating points using a 7.685 liter medium-heavy-duty diesel engine. The 2-LEG system achieves high efficiency NOx reduction compared with the single flow NSR system, and has the significant advantage of NOx reduction in high-exhaust flow conditions.
