Diesel engine speed control with handling of driveline resonances

A vehicular driveline transfer engine torque to the wheels. Resonances in the elastic parts of the driveline are important to handle when control of the engine and the transmission is optimized. Traditional diesel engine speed control maintains a well-damped engine speed set by the driver. However, the resonance modes of the driveline are easily excited by accelerator-position changes or by road disturbances. A speed-control strategy is proposed that includes the behavior of the driveline, and reduces driveline resonances and vehicle shuffle by engine control. Implementation shows significant reduction, also when facing nonlinear torque limitations from maximum torque and diesel smoke delimiters.
