Development of a Diesel Particulate Filter Burner Control System for Active Trap Regeneration 2007-01-1064

This paper outlines the development of a diesel fuel burner for Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration. The burner utilizes the application of a dual featured ignition system that may enable a burner system to be more cost effective, reliable, and efficient than other burners or Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC). The ignition system incorporates high-energy ignition and ion sensing into a single controller. These two features provide many benefits for burner applications. The high-energy ignition provides enhanced light-off characteristics while simultaneously cleaning the electrode surfaces. Ion sensing allows precise flame control through high-speed ignition and flameout feedback. Initial data has already confirmed many of these anticipated benefits.
