    Abstract : New combustion engine principles increase the demands on feedback combustion control, at the same time economical considerations currently enforce the usage of low-end control hardware limiting implementation possibilities. Significant development is simultaneously and continuously carried out within the field of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). READ MORE

  2. 2. Control Structures for Low-Emission Combustion in Multi-Cylinder Engines

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Maria Henningsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LQG control; fumigation; mid-ranging control; HCCI engine; engine control;

    Abstract : Traditionally, heavy-duty diesel engines have high efficiencies but also high emissions of NOx and soot particles. New engine concepts show the potential to retain diesel-like efficiencies while reducing emissions by forming a completely or partially homogeneous mixture of fuel and air prior to ignition through compression.

  3. 3. Predictive Control of HCCI Engines Using Physical Models

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Anders Widd; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Model Predictive Control; HCCI engine; engine control;

    Abstract : Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) is a promising internal combustion engine concept. It holds promise of combining low emission levels with high efficiency. However, as ignition timing in HCCI operation lacks direct actuation and is highly sensitive to operating conditions and disturbances, robust closed-loop control is necessary. READ MORE

  4. 4. Data-Rich Multivariable Control of Heavy-Duty Engines

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Maria Henningsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multivariable Control; Model Predictive Control; LQG Control; Virtual Sensing; System Identification; Diesel engines; HCCI engines; Dual-Fuel Combustion; Cylinder Pressure Sensors;

    Abstract : The combustion engine is today the dominant technology for transportation of goods and people world-wide. Concerns for global warming, toxic exhaust emissions, as well as cost and availability of fuel have in recent years created incentives for technological evolution of combustion engines. READ MORE

  5. 5. Closed-Loop Control of HCCI Engine Dynamics

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Johan Bengtsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; robotteknik; Automatiska system; reglerteknik; Automation; robotics; control engineering;

    Abstract : The topic of the thesis is control of Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engine dynamics. HCCI offers a potential to combine high efficiency with very low emissions. In order to fulfill the potential benefits, closed-loop control is needed. READ MORE
