Determining the concentration of limited gaseous noxious components in the exhaust gas of internal combustion engines by full stream measurement using titania gas sensors

Bestimmung der Konzentration von limitierten gasförmigen Schadstoffkomponenten im Abgas von Verbrennungsmotoren durch Vollstrommessung mit Titanoxidgassensoren

  • 20 Accesses

Abstract

The prototype of an exhaust gas sensor presented in this article is capable of performing full stream measurements within the exhaust pipe of internal combustion engines. The measurement system consists of a metal oxide gas sensor array and a control unit for sensor temperature control, sensor signal recording and data analysis. Extensive experimental work was carried out with gasoline and diesel engines on engine test benches. The project, supported by the State of Saxony, was performed by GPP Chemnitz mbH, ZfM at the Free TU Chemnitz, ZAFT e.V. at HTW Dresden and ZMD AG Dresden.
