Modeling of Sensor Performance During Engine Testing 2007-01-1299

The paper deals with the investigation of pressure, flow and temperature sensor performance under unsteady conditions using advanced 1-D codes for simulation of engine operation.
Approach of internal combustion engine (ICE) sensor modeling in an engine simulation code is described. Some new external modules have been developed to couple engine-and-pipe model to sensors.
Sensor dynamic and engine dynamic effects are separated by combining a sensor model with an engine model. The models were tuned to match real data with the goal of uncovering the transfer function between the measured signal and the actual signal.
Procedure for estimation of the in-cylinder pressure pattern from distorted pattern at sensor location using empirical transfer function is presented.
The developed model seems to have a wide application, e.g. for investigation of dynamical characteristics of lambda sensors or gas analyzer probes.
