A Simplified Coldstart Catalyst Thermal Model to Reduce Hydrocarbon Emissions


It is a well-known phenomenon that the bulk of hydrocarbon emissions emitted from internal combustion engines occurs during the coldstart period, thus necessitating new control strategies to reduce hydrocarbon emissions. A simplified thermal model of the catalytic converter during coldstart is developed, employing thermal dynamics, oxygen storage and static… (More)
