The aims of this research is investigate the hydrogen production via biodiesel fuel partial oxidation reforming. Hydrogen production can enhance combustion in cylinder and improved aftertreatment activities. A reforming reaction is when a chemical reacts with oxygen available in exhaust gas and diesel fuel injection. The 2%Pt-1%Rh-CeO2-ZrO2/γ-Al2O3 was selected as the active catalyst in this research. This study investigates the effect of gas space velocity (SV) (e.g., 10k h-1 and 16k h-1) and fuel addition flow rate (10-30 ml/h) on hydrogen production efficiency. As can be seen that the hydrogen from reforming reaction was promoted under the real engine operating conditions. Hydrogen is produced via partial oxidation of hydrocarbons reforming. The effects of space velocity SV (h−1) and hydrocarbon addition, which enhanced energy input for the reforming process, are the main effect on hydrogen production over the reforming catalyst. The maximum hydrogen yield are achieved 11%. In the future, hydrogen production via partial oxidation fuel reforming could be developed for production of hydrogen on-board the vehicle.

Microkinetic Modelling for Propane Oxidation in Channel Flows of a Silver-Based Automotive Catalytic Converter

Published 2011-08-30 by SAE International in United States
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to simulate chemical reactions and transport phenomena occurring in a single channel of a honeycomb-type automotive catalytic converter under lean burn combustion. Microkinetic analysis is adopted to develop a detailed elementary reaction mechanism for propane oxidation on a silver catalyst. Activation energies are calculated based on the theory of the Unity Bond Index-Quadratic Exponential Potential (UBI-QEP) method. The order-of-magnitude of the pre-exponential factors is obtained from Transition State Theory (TST). Sensitivity analysis is applied to identify the important elementary steps and refine the pre-exponential factors of these reactions. These pre-exponential factors depend on inlet temperatures and propane concentration; therefore optimised pre-exponential factors are written in polynomial forms. The results of numerical simulations are validated by comparison with experimental data.
