Active Combustion Control of Diesel HCCI Engine: Combustion Timing 2008-01-0984
We propose a model based control strategy to adapt the injection settings according to the air path dynamics on a Diesel HCCI engine. This approach complements existing airpath and fuelpath controllers, and aims at accurately controlling the start of combustion. For that purpose, start of injection is adjusted based on a Knock Integral Model and intake manifold conditions. Experimental results are presented, which stress the relevance of the approach.
