Abstract

A novel real time smoke sensor is described, which is mounted in the exhaust manifold and detects the smoke by virtue of the natural electrical charge which is carried on the smoke. The somewhat obscure origin of the charge on the smoke is briefly considered, as well as the operation of the sensor itself. The use of the sensor as part of a feedback control shows that it can be very effective in reducing smoke puffs. Copyright © 1987 Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc.
