Optimal Air Path Control During Load Transients on a Spark Ignited Engine With Variable Geometry Turbine and Variable Valve Timing
Sprache des Titels:
n recent years, the main goal of the automative industry has been to reduce fuel consumption. Downsizing is a promising way to achieve this, which has shown success. Downsized, turbocharged engines suffer from slow transient torque response. This slow response is due to the slow dynamics of the turbocharger. This paper investigates the torque response of a spark ignited engine with variable geometry turbine (VGT) and variable valve timing. Optimal open-loop trajectories for the overlap and the VGT position for a fast transient response are found. This optimization is based on a 1-D simulation model. Based on this optimization, a generic feedback strategy for controlling the VGT is found. This strategy is implemented and evaluated on an engine and shows good performance.
