Real-Time Simulation of Gasoline Engines-A Development Tool for a New Exhaust Emission Concept 901537
In the research project “New Exhaust Emission Concept”, supported by the Minister of Research and Technology of the Federal Republic of Germany, the main goal was the minimization of the raw exhaust emission of a gasoline engine by operating the engine in its (HC +NOx)-minimum, as well as the improvement of its fuel economy. With respect to these goals it was necessary to develop new control strategies. To preadjust the appropriate electronic control systems already in the laboratory, a real time simulator was developed, to reproduce the sensor signals of a gasoline engine under steady state, but also under dynamic conditions.
The paper gives a survey over the technical specifications of the simulator, the method of mathematical engine modelling, the simulation algorithms and the used hardware solution. Some characteristic results show the performance and the adventages of the use of the simulation system.
