Functiebeschrijving

​In current engine-aftertreatment technology the deNOx catalyst (SCR) is the last (furthest downstream) component in a series of catalyst bricks. The SCR being last in line is disadvantageous for its heat-up time after engine cold start. To reduce heat-up time, future aftertreatment system concepts consider configurations where an (additional) SCR is placed as first catalyst brick.

Goal of this assignment is to come up with a control concept for an upstream SCR (controlling urea dosing). Target is to control urea dosing such that highest NOx conversion rates are achieved, at minimum slip of excessive NH3. Challenges include fouling of SCR substrate due to engine-out HC's/carbonaceous materials and strategies to counteract this.
