Pre-treatment techniques employed for exhaust emission control of compression ignition engines were found to reduce the emission levels by small percentage only, failing to meet the required emission regulations. Post-treatment technique including diesel particulate filtration, diesel oxidation catalysis and selective catalytic reduction is found to be an effective solution. While the fuel-based regeneration of diesel particulate filter leads to uncontrolled combustion affecting the durability of the filter. Development of an effective regeneration system is one of the major technical challenges faced by automotive industry for meeting emission norms. A composite regeneration system with the application of microwave energy is proposed in this paper. As an initial phase, a three-dimensional model of the system is developed and its flow analysis is carried out by considering the case of single channel flow. Simulation of the regeneration process is also done by developing a Simulink model. The results of simulation showed that an engine running continuously for a period of 24 hours would require three regenerations.
