Test Cell Analysis Control System

Courteau, Robert
Telephone No. - (343) 550-1614

Environment and Climate Change Canada’s (ECCC) is required under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) Part 7 Division 5 to conduct exhaust emission measurements on ultra-low emission light duty vehicles ULEV). The ERMS currently has a fully functional, automated light duty vehicle emissions test laboratory however the analysis control system is reaching the end of its useful life, and the objective is to replace the existing test cell system with a current state-of-the-art system.

The Emissions Research and Measurement Section (ERMS) has the requirement for the supply and commissioning for one control system to integrate the existing analysis components necessary to conduct exhaust emission measurements of ULEVs according to the test procedures described in the relevant sections of the United States Code of Federal Regulations Title 40 Part 1066, inclusive of all system components, installation, commissioning, accessories, training, and technical documentation.

As this testing is being performed to support regulatory and research commitments of CEPA it is paramount that the instrumentation meets technical and reliability requirements and whose results are accepted by industry.

Test Cell Analysis Control System

1.0 Application Description

The system must provide an automation analysis application for executing vehicle emission tests. The application shall provide integration, control and management functions to allow an appropriately equipped test cell to perform vehicle emission tests to legislative standards and for R&D purposes.

The system shall enable the user to measure vehicle exhaust emissions collected in a sample bag, measure continuous dilute and modal emissions from alternative, gasoline and diesel fueled vehicles. This data is then used to provide the vehicle mass emissions produced by the vehicle under test according to the test executed and the regulatory requirements of that test. The system shall also allow the user to create custom testing programs.

The system shall be provided with testing routines, procedures and analysis based upon the regulatory requirements of the World Light-Duty Test Procedures (WLTP) and 40 CFR 1066, as well as other global drive cycles. The system shall allow user developed drive and test cycles as well as vehicle shift schedules to be imported into the application.

The system must include features to manage emission measurement analysis equipment during the test, record data, analyze recorded measurements and generate a report.

The system shall be provided with:
• An integrated Driver’s Aid
• Global Drive Cycles
• Shift Schedules
• Emission Test Execution
• Test Results Reporting
• Test Results Analysis
• User Configured Graphics
• User defined test execution
• Quality control checks of the entire test cell, including the dynamometer and emissions measurement systems
• Centralized management of configuration and results data

The system shall be compliant with current regulations standard for:
• USA according to EPA 40 CFR Part 86, 40 CFR Part 1066
• World Harmonized Light Duty Test Procedures (WLTP)

1.1 Features which must be included

• Integrated Driver’s Aid as a configurable test cell resource
• Clear indications for devices status, operations and measured values
• Editors to configure the system and create new resources
• Analysis to verify and trace results calculations
• Analysis to generate an audit report of the calculations
• The ability to editors and browse test definitions, test cycles, fuels and vehicles
• Drive trace completion status
• Device operations and status
• Display of test status
• Progress through the test and time to completion
• Continuous concentration data
• CVS blower start/stop
• Heat exchanger control if present
• Flow selection based on test data, including flow setting on a per-phase basis
• Bag sampling venturi selection (if present)
• Bag preparation, sampling and reading
• Management of clean/dirty bag sets
