ZIRCONIA OXYGEN SENSOR -- AN EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT MODEL
The zirconia exhaust gas oxygen sensor is a key component in closed loop engine emissions control systems. An equivalent circuit model of the sensor is derived from fundamental electrochemical principles. In this model, sensor electrode resistance and capacitance are separated from the zirconia electrolyte resistance. Numerical examples are given to show how the equivalent circuit can be used to model both steady state and transient characteristics of sensors.
