Patent
Nagasaki University and Figaro Engineering Inc. | Date: 2016-02-05

A CO sensor includes a solid electrolyte substrate, a sensing electrode, and a reference electrode, and outputs electromotive forces in accordance with CO concentrations. The sensing electrode and the reference electrode are provided on the same surface of the solid electrolyte substrate. The sensing electrode contains a metal oxide such as Bi_(2)O_(3 )that generates a positive electromotive force response when coming into contact with CO. The reference electrode contains a metal oxide such as CeO_(2 )that generates a negative electromotive force response when coming into contact with CO.

An output of a direct current power supply is divided with a pair of resistors, and applied to any of electrodes of an electrochemical gas sensor provided with a detection electrode, a counter electrode and a solid electrolyte membrane through a buffer amplifier. Impedance of the gas sensor is measured by switching with a switch the connection destination of one electrode of the electrochemical gas sensor between a current amplification circuit and an impedance measurement circuit. The impedance measurement circuit is formed of an alternating current power supply that switches a potential of a resistor on a side of one end connected to the switch and a potential on a side of the other end of the resistor, between the output potential and the ground potential of the direct current power supply. Gas concentration is determined by storing humidity dependency and temperature dependency of the electrochemical gas sensor, and correcting the output of the current amplification circuit based on measured impedance and ambient temperature.

A method and apparatus for diagnosing an electrochemical sensor that detects the concentration of a gas are operative for diagnosing whether or not the sensor is in an error state due to a rise in a resistance in the electrolyte of the sensor. Such detection is made on the basis of a current flowing between a sensing electrode and an opposite electrode or a voltage corresponding to the current. A method for diagnosing an electrochemical sensor having a solid or liquid electrolyte between a sensing electrode and an opposite electrode detects the concentration of the gas to be detected on the basis of a current flowing between the sensing electrode and the opposite electrode, or a voltage corresponding to the current. Whether or not the electrochemical sensor is in an error state is diagnosed on the basis of a resistance of the electrolyte between the two electrodes of the electrolyte.
