Modelling the Compression Ignition Engine for Control: Review and Future Trends. 2004-01-0423
Constraints change as pollutant standards or embedded diagnosis demands require improvements in model accuracy and their suitability for control algorithm synthesis. From thermodynamic mathematical modelling to non-parametric models, a wide range of techniques has been investigated for the last thirty years involving both physicists and control engineers. The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of current modelling techniques oriented control analysis and design for compression ignition engines. Short examples illustrate each techniques and existing applications are considered. Comparison of various engine models exhibit the trend to include more physical knowledge inside model-based control design.
