Cylinder Air Charge Estimation for a Diesel Engine Equipped with VGT, EGR, and SCV 2011-01-1148

Cylinder air charge is an important parameter to reduce generation of visible emissions by adjusting the amount of fuel injected into a diesel engine. In this study, we propose a cylinder air charge estimation algorithm for a diesel engine equipped with variable geometry turbocharger (VGT), exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), and swirl control valve (SCV). The estimation algorithm predicts the cylinder air charge using a mean value air path model and measurable signals available in mass produced engines. The estimation algorithm addresses effects of the VGT, EGR, and SCV on the cylinder air charge. The proposed estimation algorithm was validated with a 1-D engine model simulation.
