Observer Based Feedforward Air-Fuel Control of Turbocharged SI-Engines

Abstract: Air-fuel control on turbocharged (TC) SI-engines require precise prediction of the cylinder air-charge (CAC). Using an observer it is possible to both estimate the necessary system states and to provide a framework to design the necessary CAC feedforward controller. Here a mean value engine model of a TC SI-engine is used to develop an observer. The output of the observer is fed as an initial condition to a predictor which is used for feedforward of the CAC for air-fuel control. The resulting controller is experimentally validated on a SAAB 2.0 dm^3 TC engine using tip-in and tip-out transients. The results show that the excursions in lambda are less than 5%.
