In-Cylinder Pressure based Modeling for Injection Parameters by PCA with Feature Correlation Analysis
Modern Diesel engines have become complex systems with a high number of available sensor information and degrees of freedom in control. Due to recent developments in production type in-cylinder pressure sensors, there is again an upcoming interest for in-cylinder pressure based applications. Besides the standard approaches, like to use it for closed loop combustion control, also estimation and on-board diagnostics have become important topics. Not surprising in general the trend is to utilize those sensors for as many tasks as possible. Consequently this work focuses on the estimation of the injection parameters based on the indicated pressure signal information which can be seen as first step of a combustion control based on desirable indicated pressure characteristics which may be utilized for e.g. the minimization of NOx emissions. Currently the acquisition of the cylinder pressure traces can be done in real-time by fast FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) based systems.
