VENTURI VACUUM TRANSDUCER ENABLES HEAVY EGR CONTROL
In order to significantly reduce NOx levels by EGR (exhaust gas recirculation), while maintaining good fuel economy and driveability, the EGR flow rate must be properly and accurately controlled under a variety of engine operating conditions. Toward this objective, a new EGR control system was developed. It utilizes a carburetor venturi vacuum for a stable reference signal that represents the engine operating condition and it controls the EGR flow rate by using a feedback principle to obtain sufficient flexibility compatible with several different engines.
