The low-NOx standard for heavy-duty trucks proposed by the California Air Resources Board will require rapid warm-up of the aftertreatment system (ATS). Several different aftertreatment architectures and technologies, all based on selective catalytic reduction (SCR), are being considered to meet this need. One of these architectures, the close-coupled SCR (ccSCR), was evaluated in this study using two different physics-based, 1D models; the simulations focused on the first 300 seconds of the cold-start Federal Test Procedure (FTP). The first model, describing a real, EuroVI-compliant engine equipped with series turbochargers, was used to evaluate a ccSCR located either i) immediately downstream of the low-pressure turbine, ii) in between the two turbines, or iii) in a by-pass around the high pressure turbine. These simulations indicate that the location downstream of the low-pressure turbine offers nearly the best NOx conversion, and that the optimal volume of the ccSCR in this location is 25% of a conventional SCR catalyst. The second model describes a conventional heavy-duty aftertreatment system, to which a ccSCR was added. This model was used to examine the performance of the ccSCR in the context of the full ATS. Optimization of the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and SCR catalyst designs in this system was considered, as well as the use of an NH3 storage-based control strategy for DEF dosing to the SCR catalysts.
