Published 2018-04-03 by SAE International in United States
Indian automobile industry is set to witness the biggest emission reforms of the last two decades with the implementation of BS6 emission norms from 1st April 2020 and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) from 1st April 2023. However, there are still a lot of unanswered questions regarding the test procedure of RDE for India. For India, adopting European RDE test procedure as it is may be a challenge because of the significant differences between India and Europe in terms of weather, geography, demography, road infrastructure, driving behavior and fuel quality. This paper discusses the detailed experimental results of Real Driving Emission tests analyzing after-treatment system configurations (LNT, sDPF, ufSCR) considering different scenarios such as test routes, test days, driving behavior etc. Variation in trip dynamics (Severity, Softness in driving), trip validity and normality and post-processed results are other key points of interests investigated. The overall activity provided great insights into the possible modifications which may be required for RDE test suitable to Indian conditions. The learning such derived will be of immense value for future design…
