Event: JSAE Autumn Conference
A new multi-dimensional method has been developed to simulate the warm-up characteristic for automotive catalytic converters. The method is based on temperature prediction combined with fluid dynamics prediction. In the first place of the paper, the verification of the method is present. In the next, the method is applied to the electrically heated catalyst to optimize the heating location. In results, heating only front face of the catalyst is showed best heating strategy.
