Methods of Pressure Cycle Processing for Engine Control 2003-01-0352
Several methods have been proposed to use pressure signal for air/fuel ratio estimation, knock detection and optimal spark timing selection. In this paper some of these methods were compared, and their accuracy and effectiveness was checked.
In order to avoid the misleading effects of measurement errors, the comparison was performed using a database of test conditions obtained by means of the WAVE code (Ricardo).
New correlations physically based were introduced to evaluate the trapped air mass and the Exhaust Gas Recycling (EGR), cylinder per cylinder. These correlations can give a very important contribution to balance the air-fuel ratio in each cylinder and to improve EGR control strategies.
