Two-Degree-of-Freedom Controller Design for Diesel Engine Airpath System Considering Dynamics of Turbocharger and Manifolds 2019-01-2321

We developed a two-degree-of-freedom (2-DOF) control system for a diesel engine airpath system. First, a physical airpath model of the diesel engine was developed, followed by a nonlinear feedforward controller developed based on the inverse characteristics of the developed physical model. The dynamics of turbocharger and manifolds were considered in the feedforward controller to improve the transient response. The feedback controller was designed by H control theory considering plant nonlinearities as uncertainties. The feedforward and feedback controllers were implemented as a 2-DOF freedom control scheme. The effectiveness of the proposed method was evaluated by conducting simulation and experiment.
