Boosted Gasoline Direct Injection Engines: Comparison of Throttle and VGT Controllers for Homogeneous Charge Operation 2002-01-0709

In this paper, we compare controllers for the electronic throttle and variable geometry turbocharger in boosted stoichiometric gasoline direct injection engines. The control objectives are fast response and small overshoot of the intake manifold pressure. The problem is treated within the multi-objective optimization framework, applied to a simulation model of the engine. Pareto optimal fronts are constructed for each of the controllers and compared to each other. The best controller is thereby identified and further options to improve its response via preview-based control are discussed.
