Engine Dynamometer Study of the Transient Response of ZrO2 and TiO2 Exhaust Gas Oxygen Sensors 830985
The transient response of ZrO2 and TiO2 EGO sensors has been investigated under actual engine operating conditions. The results of this study show that the response of an EGO sensor is dependent upon the characteristics of the engine and feedback control system with which it is used. Specifically, sensor response time is a function of the magnitude and frequency of the A/F changes and the initial and final values of A/F to which the sensor is exposed. ZrO2 and TiO2 sensors show similar transient behavior and have practically equivalent response times.
