A Methodology for Virtual Engine Mapping Test of CIDI Engine with Arbitrary Fuel Injection Schedule for Control Purpose 2005-01-0230
With the introduction of common rail fuel injection system enabling multiple injections per stroke and stringent pollutant emission standards, the optimization and calibration of modern compression ignition direct injection (CIDI) engines become more complex. Thus, a simple and efficient tool for CIDI combustion simulation with arbitrary fuel injection profile is required today. A crank-angle resolved combustion model was developed and validated by using a fuel injection rig and an engine dynamometer for the parameterization. With the calibrated models, accurate prediction of the in-cylinder pressure and NOx and also a virtual dynamometer mapping are possible. The results from these virtual mappings can be used to calibrate the black-box combustion models in control-oriented, dynamic Mean Value Models (MVM).
