Modeling, Validation and Analysis of the Fuel Supply and Injection System for NVH Improvement
In the powertrain development of an automobile, the accurate prediction and understanding of the fuel supply and injection system behavior is necessary to achieve the targeted vehicle performance. With stronger demand from the customers for quieter vehicles, complementary functional objectives have to be met such as packaging, component or material change, or the modification of the fuel supply system layout. Understand the possible sources of noise and vibration from the fuel supply and delivery system requires having an analytical model of a complete fuel system, from the fuel pump assembly to the injectors. One has to note that adequate level of component details is required for the modeling and validation. In this study, the lumped-parameter model approach of the fluid dynamics on the fuel supply and delivery system has been developed and validated with the test results.
