Emission Controls for a 2.2L Diesel Engine 860417

Abstract

The adoption of stringent emission control requirements for diesel powered vehicles has generated the need for emission reducing engine controls. An exhaust gas recirculation system controlled by a true mass airflow sensor has been developed for a light duty truck equipped with a 2.2 liter, naturally aspirated, diesel engine to satisfy these requirements. An intake air throttle provides a method of reducing the intake mass airflow to the engine. The air/fuel ratio, which will simultaneously obtain the desired NOx emission level and minimize any increase in particulates, is achieved by a combination of intake air throttling and introduction of exhaust gas recirculation. The control system reduces emission output in a simple, cost effective manner, without adversely affecting fuel economy or driveability.
