The analysis of the behavior of emissions of CO, CO2 are clear to determine the behavior of the engine work cycle in addition to the verification of the graph of the lambda factor, for which the study of the importance of a catalyst is performed because some Sometimes the owners of the vehicles decide to eliminate the catalytic converter from the output line of the combustion gases of the engine and circulate along the roads of Ecuador ignoring the impact on the health of citizens and direct pollution towards the environment. With the analysis of the operation and characteristics of the pollutant emissions of an internal combustion engine Otto cycle, control models are generated for the projection of the amount of pollutant gases that are emitted when eliminating the catalytic converter and thereby establishing the emission levels that a vehicle without a catalyst is generated despite the fact that the engine is in optimal operating conditions at different speeds.
