Model Based Air Fuel Ratio Control for Reducing Exhaust Gas Emissions 950075

In order to satisfy future demands of low exhaust emission vehicles (LEV), a new fuel injection control system has been developed for SI engines with three-way catalytic converters. An universal exhaust gas oxygen sensor (UEGO) is mounted on the exhaust manifold upstream of the catalytic converter to rapidly feedback the UEGO output signal and a heated exhaust gas oxygen sensor (HEGO) is mounted on the outlet of the converter to achieve an exact air fuel ratio control at stoichiometry. The control law is derived from mathematical models of dynamic air flow, fuel flow and exhaust oxygen sensors (HEGO and UEGO). Experimental results on FTP (Federal Test Procedure) exhaust emissions show a dramatic reduction of HC, CO and NOx emissions and a possibility of practical low emission vehicles at low cost.
