Optimization of In-Cylinder Flow and Swirl Generation Analysis for a Naturally Aspirated Diesel Genset Engine for Emission Reduction through Intake Port Design

College of Engineering-Sameer Tikar, Dileep Malkhede, Milankumar Nandgaonkar
Published 2019-10-11 by SAE International in United States
Engine in-cylinder flow structure governs the combustion process and directly influences emission formation and fuel consumption at the source. In naturally aspirated DI diesel engine, combustion process coupled with low pressure mechanical fuel injection systems set different requirements for inlet port performance. In-cylinder swirl needs to be optimized for efficient combustion to meet emission levels and fuel consumption targets. Thus, intake port design optimization process becomes a vital requirement.In the present paper intake port design optimization is carried out for single cylinder naturally aspirated engine using mechanical fuel injection systems. The objective is to investigate in-cylinder flow field developed by intake port designs, study the effects of geometrical details of various port cross sections on flow velocity and pressure fields and establish a relationship with intake port performance parameters i.e. swirl and flow coefficient. CFD analysis is carried out for port performance study at various valve lift positions. The design variants are experimentally validated on steady state test rig using paddle wheel principle. Further, the impact of these new intake port designs on single cylinder…

Reduction of NOx in a Single Cylinder Diesel Engine Emissions Using Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) with In-Cylinder Injection of Aqueous Urea

Univ of North Florida-Anthony Timpanaro, John Nuszkowski
Published 2019-09-09 by SAE International in United States
The subject of this study is the effect of in-cylinder selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) of NOx emissions in diesel exhaust gas by means of direct injection of aqueous urea ((NH2)2CO) into the combustion chamber. A single cylinder diesel test engine was modified to accept an electronically controlled secondary common rail injection system to deliver the aqueous urea directly into the cylinder during engine operation. Direct in-cylinder injection was chosen to ensure precise delivery of the aqueous urea without the risk of any premature reactions taking place. The injection strategy was four molar ratios, 4.0, 2.0, 1.0 and 0.5 with five varying injection timings of 60, 20, 10, 0, and -30 degrees after top dead center (ATDC). The main secondary injection fluid, aqueous urea, was mixed with glycerol (C3H8O3) in an 80-20 ratio, by mass, with the desire to function as a lubricant for the secondary injector. In addition to the base line and aqueous urea tests, neat water injection and an 80-20 ratio, by mass, water-glycerol solution tests were also conducted to compare the effects…

Published 2019-05-16 by SAE International in United States
In the last years, new stringent emission legislation in terms of nitrogen oxides (NOx) has been leading to a massive development of advanced after-treatment systems for diesel engines. Among them, selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology has proved to be an effective approach for NOx reduction in a wide range of engine operating conditions. In SCR systems, the interaction between diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) and hot exhaust gas is crucial to promote the chemical reactions through which ammonia is produced. Hence, a proper matching between the exhaust pipe architecture and the DEF spray is mandatory for obtaining an adequate SCR efficiency, especially in close-coupled configurations and moderate exhaust gas temperature conditions. To this end, significant benefits could be derived via appropriate SCR injector thermal management, as the spray structure is significantly influenced by the DEF temperature upstream of the injector nozzle. In this article, the results of a spray analysis campaign carried out on a prototype DEF dosing system are presented. The goal of this research is to investigate the influence of both air and DEF…

Experimental and Computational Study of DOC on CSF for Heavy Duty Diesel Applications

Johnson Matthey Inc.-Sharan Sethuraman, Siddarth Sitamraju, Yaritza M Lopez-De Jesus, Penelope Markatou
Published 2019-04-02 by SAE International in United States
For diesel exhaust aftertreatment applications with space limitations, as well as to move the selective catalytic reduction system (SCR) to a warmer location closer to the engine, DOC on CSF technology can be used. This technology combines the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and catalyzed soot filter (CSF) functionalities in one component, thereby enabling volume reduction. DOC on CSF maintains the abatement of hydrocarbon (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and particulate matter (PM), and the oxidation of nitric oxide (NO) to nitrogen dioxide (NO2) for passive soot oxidation and fast SCR reaction of NOx on a downstream SCR catalyst. In this study, the performance of DOC on CSF was compared to a DOC + bare diesel particulate filter (DPF) and a DOC + CSF system, to understand the performance benefits and challenges.All the components were optimized individually for their respective functions. The DOC on CSF was optimized for NO oxidation and passive soot oxidation performance. Experimental data and simulations were used to understand the underlying mechanisms in the DOC on CSF technology. Steady state HC oxidation under…

Super Ultra-Low NOX Emissions under Extended RDE Conditions - Evaluation of Light-Off Strategies of Advanced Diesel Exhaust Aftertreatment Systems

FEV GmbH-Kai Deppenkemper, Markus Ehrly lng, Markus Schoenen, Matthias Koetter
Published 2019-04-02 by SAE International in United States
Super ultra-low NOX emission engine concepts are essential to comply with future emission legislations. To meet the future emission standards, application of advanced diesel exhaust aftertreatment systems (EATS), such as Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), Lean NOX Trap (LNT), Selective Catalytic Reduction coatings on Soot Filters (SCRF) and underfloor SCR, is required. Effective customized thermal management strategies are essential to ensure fast light-off of the EATS after engine cold start, and to avoid significant cooldown during part load operation.The authors describes the investigation of different exhaust gas heating measures, such as intake throttling, late fuel injection, exhaust throttling, advanced exhaust cam phasing, retarded intake cam phasing, cylinder deactivation, full turbine bypass, electric catalyst heating and electrically heated intake manifold strategies. For those investigations, a steady-state GT-Power simulation model of a state-of-the-art EU6c 2.0 L diesel engine, equipped with high and low pressure exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and 2-stage boosting, was used. The results were then transferred to FEV´s complete powertrain simulation platform. As representative vehicles, a C segment car, a compact SUV and a light duty…

Engine-Aftertreatment in Closed-Loop Modeling for Heavy Duty Truck Emissions Control

Oak Ridge National Laboratory-Zhiming Gao, Dean Deter, David Smith, Josh Pihl, C. Stuart Daw, James Parks
Published 2019-04-02 by SAE International in United States
An engine-aftertreatment computational model was developed to support in-loop performance simulations of tailpipe emissions and fuel consumption associated with a range of heavy-duty (HD) truck drive cycles. For purposes of this study, the engine-out exhaust dynamics were simulated with a combination of steady-state engine maps and dynamic correction factors that accounted for recent engine operating history. The engine correction factors were approximated as dynamic first-order lags associated with the thermal inertia of the major engine components and the rate at which engine-out exhaust temperature and composition vary as combustion heat is absorbed or lost to the surroundings. The aftertreatment model included catalytic monolith components for diesel exhaust oxidation, particulate filtration, and selective catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) with urea. Both the engine and aftertreatment models have been calibrated with dynamometer measurements from a commercial 2010-certificated 15-L Cummins diesel engine. The fuel consumption engine map with the reduced data is attached in the appendix. Simulations with the combined engine and aftertreatment models above appear to reveal important trends among the fuel efficiency, emissions control, power…

A Real-Time Control Framework for Integrated Diesel Engine and Selective Catalytic Reduction System

Tennessee Technological University-Kuo Yang, Pingen Chen
Published 2019-04-02 by SAE International in United States
Diesel engines have been widely adopted in medium- to heavy-duty ground vehicles, due to high engine efficiency, high power output, and superior reliability. However, as Diesel engine emission regulation has been significantly tightened in the past decade, emission control has become a major barrier for Diesel engine efficiency improvement. Integrated Diesel engine and aftertreatment system controls are very important for modern Diesel engines to further improve fuel efficiency while facing increasingly stringent NOx and particulate matter (PM) emission regulations. In this paper, a real-time implementable, integrated engine-aftertreatment control framework was proposed to coordinate a modern Diesel engine with the coupled urea-based selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system for achieving close-to-optimal engine efficiency while meeting tight tailpipe NOx and NH3 slip requirements. With engine-out NOx emissions being considered as an additional active control input (other than urea solution injection rate) to the SCR system, both engine fuel efficiency and tailpipe emissions were incorporated in the new multi-input SCR control problem formulation. Nonlinear backstepping-based control allocation algorithms were designed to intentionally increase engine-out NOx emissions without sacrificing the…

Thermally Durable Zeolite Based SCR Catalysts for Controlling NOx Emissions in Diesel Exhaust to Meet BS VI Norms

Ecocat India Pvt, Ltd.-Vishnuvarthan Muthusamy, Matti Harkonen, Arvind Kumar, Alok Trigunayat, Bosco Rajan
Published 2019-01-09 by SAE International in United States
From the recent past, automotive exhaust emission management strategies has been progressing towards an alternative for vanadia based selective catalytic reduction (V-SCR) of NOx in diesel powered vehicles. Some of the major inadequacies of existing V-SCR technology were as follows: poor thermal endurance (deteriorates at 550°-600°C), volatilization of harmful vanadium into environment and inadequate NO2 conversion.Metal incorporated zeolite systems, (the metals being preferably selected from transition metal elements), has gained momentum for commercial DeNOx applications. However, the major challenge with this zeolite SCR (Z-SCR) was its low thermal/hydrothermal stability. In the current study, it has been attempted to overcome this by various zeolites and metals combinations. Various combinations of metallic Z-SCR were extensively studied for their low and high temperature activities. The host zeolites were selected on the basis of various properties such as surface area, crystallinity, crystal size and pore opening etc. The active transition metals were also selected based on its affinity to react and attach with the zeolytic framework elements. It has been observed that when the selected transition metal is substituted…

Feasibility study of a near-infrared absorption sensor for detection of adulterated diesel exhaust fluid (Arla 32)

SENAI CIMATEC-Jorsiele Damasceno Cerqueira, Valéria Loureiro da Silva
UNIFACS-Paulo Alexandre Souza da Silva
Published 2018-09-03 by SAE International in United States
The Global trend to reduce toxic emissions associated with the expansion of Diesel engines usage led to the implementation of new regulations aimed at the reduction of diesel engine emissions. Since 2012, the PRONCONVE P7, which mandates a reduction in NOx emissions, has been in place in Brazil. Therefore, heavy duty vehicle manufacturers had to implement an after treatment system in new vehicles, where an aqueous urea solution (ARLA 32 in Brazil or AdBlue in some other countries) is injected into a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system to convert NOx gases into N2 and water. The Arla 32 is stored in a tank which needs to be periodically refilled at gas stations. As the ARLA 32 is an aqueous solution with no characteristic odor or color, it can be easily adulterated without any visible sign. A diluted or contaminated ARLA 32 will affect the system performance and cause significant problems for the truck owner, such as loss of engine power, greater maintenance cost and potentially damage the SCR system.In this work, we will describe the…
