Model-based Compensation of the Injector Dynamics for Multiple-Injection Combustion Patterns 2007-24-0071
The paper presents a new control strategy to compensate the mutual influence of multiple injections in diesel and HCCI engines. The approach is based on a control-oriented model of the process, which represents the dependencies between injection timing, rail pressure, and masses injected. The model is conveniently inverted to yield the injection timing required to obtain a desired mass pattern. The model-based compensator developed is calibrated against measurements taken both on a dedicated injection bench and on a HCCI engine test bench. The compensator is then implemented in the control unit of the latter and validated against measurements of fuel consumption.
