Stochastic Characteristics of Knock and IMEP 2018-01-1155

Knock control strategies attempt to optimize the tradeoff between improving torque output and engine efficiency while also regulating knock intensity and protecting the engine from damage. This tradeoff must be made in a stochastic framework since knocking combustion behaves as a random process. This paper therefore examines the marginal and joint statistical properties of both knock intensity, and IMEP under knock limited conditions. Autocorrelation and Pearson chi-squared tests are also used to validate the cyclic independence of the data, or to identify prior cycle effects. The results and joint distribution give insight into the tri-variate relationship between knock intensity, IMEP, and spark advance, providing a foundation for improved knock/IMEP simulation and optimized controller design.
