Lambda regulation

Catalytic converter can correctly work only if the coefficient of excess of air l is perhaps closer to 1 that corresponds to a fuel/air 14,7:1 ratio. In order that it was carried out in practice, systems of injection of MPI/MPFI are supplied so-called a lambda regulation. Thus the lambda probe measures amount of oxygen in exhaust gases – comparable size for composition of mix of fuel/air. If the indicator deviates from ideal, the control unit regulates composition of mix.

Regulation works in the range from l = 0,8 to l = 1,2, and fluctuations of this value are welcomed because only in this case catalytic converter copes with almost full transformation of harmful substances.

The lambda probe transmits a signal only after temperatures exceeding 350 °C. In order that this temperature range was reached as soon as possible, the probe is warmed electrically. Until the probe does not reach the working temperature, the system is lagged behind unregulated and is guided on the set average coefficient.

As you already guessed: 6-cylinder Audi is supplied with two catalytic converters and also two lambda probes.
