To control fast switching valves boosted current signals are used to drive the solenoid. A faster reaction without excessive power consumption, destroying the solenoid, is reached by optimizing this signal. Its shape gets more complex and the tuning effort rises. Production and material constraints and other ambient conditions make it impossible to find a realistic energy saving signal only using simulation. One possibility to consider the various objectives like robustness, power consumption and switching time in parallel to find the optimized current shape is to employ multi objective hardware in the loop (HIL) optimization. In this paper a method is shown that optimizes the current signal by multi objective genetic optimization integrating a physical valve in the optimization loop.
