Abstract:
Diesel particulate filter regeneration (through oxidation of the collected soot particles) is not currently possible under all engine operating conditions without additional external thermal energy. The exploitation of the autothermal properties of the reverse flow reactor has been suggested to reduce further the soot ignition temperature and hereby is studied for the periodically reversed flow regeneration of soot particulate filters, with the aid of a mathematical model for the regeneration process, validated against experimental data. The numerical results confirm the capability of the new technique to effectively succeed where conventional regeneration fails, extending thus the operating limits of already practiced regeneration techniques (thermal or catalyst-assisted) and setting the stage for the construction of an industrial prototype.
