An Experimental Study for NOx - Emission Reduction with Urea-SCR Technology in Vehicular Diesel Engines
In order to fulfill future emission standards for middle and heavy-duty vehicles like state Ⅳ and Ⅴ, advanced measures on exhaust gas and engine functionality are required. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is the unique technology currently which can improve the emission and reduce fuel consumption simultaneously. Firstly the reductants and its chemical reactions, SCR system configurations and its working principle and urea dosing control strategy are introduced. Then tests are conducted on a diesel engine with SCR system at bench. The results of ESC cycle show that NOx emission is decreased by more than 67% with the open-loop control strategy. Additionally, the urea and fuel consumption and ammonia leakage have been compared and analyzed respectively, the experiment data indicates that the urea water solution consumption ratio is only 5.7% of fuel for this SCR system, while its average ammonia slip is below 5 ppm.
