Investigation into the Applicability of an Optical Fiber Sensor for Knock Detection and Knock Control System 922370

A new fiber optic sensor has been used to detect knocking combustion. With this sensor it is possible to detect high frequency signals which are free from electrical and mechanical disturbance. By using the maximum signal rise of the detected optical signals for each combustion cycle, it is possible to clearly seperate knocking and non-knocking cycles. The detected maximum signal rise was used in a preliminary test as the input of a knock control system.
