Modelling and Architecture Examples of Model Based Engine Control

Environmental regulations and drivability issues are driving forces in the development of control systems for automotive engines. Precise control of the air and fuel is fundamental for achieving the goals. Furthermore, the architecture for the controller plays a central role in how the goals are achieved.

A comparison is made between two conventional controller structures and a model based structure. The performance of the different control structures is evaluated on a simulation model. To point out the differences the evaluation is concentrated to transient conditions where a step in throttle angle is used as input to the system. In addition, connections between controllers and the engine model is discussed.
