A One-Point Calibration Method for the On-Line Measurement of Diesel Particulate Loading in Ceramic Filters 930366

Filter regeneration systems require an accurate and reliable measurement of diesel particulate (soot) accumulation. This paper describes recent advances in the development of a device that uses radio-frequency (RF) technology to measure filter soot loads. A one-point calibration method is presented that provides a means to significantly reduce filter system development costs. Results from both on-vehicle and laboratory testing programs are discussed. The on-line monitoring of catalytic and energy-addition regeneration processes is also described.
