Development of Real-Time Capable Engine Plant Models for use in HIL Systems 2008-01-0990

This paper presents a novel approach in real-time engine modeling. Unlike standard practices, which involve system level modeling, the presented methodology is a hybrid physical/system domain solution. Specifically, for each subsystem that the engine is divided into, a physical, map-based, or combination physical/map-based solution is chosen depending on the available computational power and the desired model detail. The resulting semi-physical engine models are suitable for real-time applications, such as Hardware-In-Loop (HiL) simulations, and, at the same time, re-usable to a large extent when model updates are required. In addition, since the proposed methodology allows for variable level of detail -from models as simple as pure map-based look-ups for torque, airflow, and exhaust temperature, all the way to models capable of predicting crank angle resolved cylinder pressure- it provides natural adjustability to the ongoing growth of computer power.
