Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new of oxygen sensor using the electrochemical oxygen pump of ZrO2-8Y2O3 zirconia electrolyte the artificial oxygen diffusion overpotential behavior has been investigated from the theoretical and practical viewpoints. The factors influencing the limiting current in the normal diffusion region. That is the oxygen molar fraction, gaseous diffusion coefficient, the temperature, the pressure, and the two geometric quantities (area and length). But the limiting current-type zirconia oxygen sensor shows an abnormal output in an exhaust gas at low excess air ratio. The influence of components of the exhaust gas and the mechanism of generation of the abnormal output are reported.
