Real-world Emission Measurements of a High Efficient Monofuel CNG Light Duty Vehicle 2009-01-1864

An optimized monofuel CNG light duty vehicle based on the Opel Zafira was investigated under real-world conditions and the results are presented in this study. To analyze the real-world performance of the monofuel CNG vehicle due to fuel consumption and exhaust emissions representative experimental test on road-test routes were performed, including sections with significantly different driving conditions. Furthermore, driving tests at different constant speeds on freeway were carried out. A benchmarking to the same vehicle with diesel powertrain was done as well. The test vehicles were equipped with a new compact on-board measurement system and additionally GPS tracking to link the received geographic information of the road-test routes with the measured exhaust mass emission data. The measurement results were validated with Matlab Simulink models of the powertrain and vehicle.
