Abstract

This document reports the results of the third part of the testing performed during the PMP inter-laboratory exercise - 13 July to 18 August 2006 - conducted at the Vehicles Emissions Laboratory (VELA2) in the Transport and Air Quality Unit of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC-Ispra). This report presents the results of the work undertaken on a 2.0 HDi diesel car equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), i.e. the Golden Vehicle. Most of the tests complied with all the requirements of the document UN-GRPE PMP Phase 3. Inter-laboratory Correlation Exercise: Framework and Laboratory Guide. The measurements included both filter based particulate mass measurements and real-time particle number measurements performed under transient conditions on a chassis dynamometer. Extra tests were conducted in order to investigate the effect of the PMP recommendations over the legislated procedures (filter media, temperature, cyclone, no backup filter). Moreover the regeneration emissions were investigated. Finally comparisons with the previous measurements of the same vehicle in JRC were made.
