Enhancement of a Software-Based Sensing Approach, which Instantaneously Determines the Mixture Fraction of Bio-Diesel Present in a Crude Oil Based Classic Diesel Fuel by Use of an Alternative Set of Integral Key-Parameters 2014-01-1348

The paper gives a short introduction to the bio-diesel mixture approach for diesel engines.
The paper continues with a description of the design of a strategy for recognition of a random bio-diesel fraction, Bx, by a purely software-based sensing technique, which creates an image of the temporal combustion behavior and uses only sensors already in service for current common rail mixture preparation systems.
A short description is made of a baseline approach of a sensing technique using a crank angle speed sensor. Hereafter the paper continues by the introduction of several integral or Upper Level (UL) key-parameters applied to enhance the precision of the Bx-detection or completely replace the original lower level combustion key-parameter set, which relates the instantaneous fraction of bio-diesel, Bx, to the engine torque.
The paper concludes presenting a series of experimental verification data obtained on a large-scale series produced 1.3 liter Turbo CR-rail passenger car engine.
