DeNOx Strategy Adaptation and Optimization in Single Cylinder LCV Application for BS6 Phase-II Norms
Powertrain complexity rapidly increasing to meet fast moving regulation requirements. The BS6 Phase-1 regulation norms were implemented in India from April 1, 2020 and replaced the previous BS4 norms. Phase-2 of the BS6 regulation norms were came into effect on April 1, 2023. To meet this stringent regulation requirement, need effective performance of after treatment systems like DOC, DPF and SCR demands critical hardware selection and implementation. A robust DeNOx emissions strategy is developed in naturally aspirated single cylinder LCV application to meet cycle emissions, real drive emissions and OBD requirements. Naturally aspirated single cylinder engine has its own challenges to meet BS6 norms like higher engine out NOx, dynamic temperature profiles etc. It is always a challenge to adapt EATS in LCV application as these are low-cost vehicles. EATS components and sensors impacts the overall cost of the vehicle.
