Comparison & Development of Combustion Engine Models for Driveline Simulation 2006-01-0436
Today, in many passenger cars and light trucks, the conventional driveline is extended by a dual mass flywheel (DMF). The DMF reduces driveline oscillations by mechanically decoupling the crankshaft and the transmission. Existing engine control systems are designed for conventional single mass flywheel (SMF) systems. In the future, to facilitate the optimal control of engines equipped with advanced DMF systems, such conventional control systems may require adaptation, modification or even replacement. The design and testing of appropriate new control systems has required the development of various types of engine models.
In this paper, various engine modeling techniques are introduced and compared in respect to their capabilities for both driveline simulation and control system development.
