Cylinder-by-Cylinder Engine Model and ECU-in-the-Loop Simulation of Common-Rail Direct Injection Diesel Engine 2006-01-0661
In this paper, a control oriented cylinder-by-cylinder engine model (CCEM) and ECU-in-the-loop simulation (EILS) of common-rail direct injection (CRDI) diesel engine are presented. The CCEM includes the combustion model of torque production so that it is possible to acquire the in-cycle information, such as cylinder pressure. EILS environment using the CCEM is proposed for cylinder pressure based controller design. It allows real-time engine simulation available, and is applicable for developing the control logic and validating prototype ECUs. Finally, the accuracy of the CCEM is evaluated by the engine experimental data.
