Development of Intake Air Pressure Sensorless Fuel Injection System for Small Motorcycles 2011-32-0564

A new control system using O₂ feedback control has been developed as an alternative to intake air pressure sensors. This control method uses the operational condition compensation coefficient Kbu. This coefficient encompasses the state of the engine and environmental conditions such as atmospheric pressure, and corrects fuel injection in response to changes in these factors. Kbu makes it possible to control the amount of fuel injection without depending on an intake air pressure sensor. It also makes it possible to carry out the appropriate air-fuel ratio correction even at times when O₂ feedback control is not operating, such as the cold period, when the engine is first started, or during transient operation, by using Kbu values recorded in the Engine Control Unit (henceforth ECU). This technology has made it possible to build a simplified electronically controlled fuel injection system for small motorcycles, while maintaining the same performance for exhaust emissions and fuel efficiency without an intake air pressure sensor.
