Engine Modelling for Control Applications

A Critical Survey

    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    In earlier work published by the author and co-authors, a dynamic engine model called a Mean Value Engine Model (MVEM) was developed. This model is physically based and is intended mainly for control applications. In its newer form, it is easy to fit to many different engines and requires little engine data for this purpose. It is especially well suited to embedded model applications in engine controllers, such as nonlinear observer based air/fuel ratio and advanced idle speed control. After a brief review of this model, it will be compared with other similar models which can be found in the literature. The attempt will be made to point out the differences between the new modified MVEM and those developed elsewhere. In particular, the questions of fitting simplicity and general applicability are to be treated.
