The potential of heat release rate and cylinder pressure feedback control for conventional and premixed charge compression ignition combustion
- Journal Article
Cylinder pressure or heat release rate tracking algorithms for direct-injected compression ignition engines allow to account for various disturbances, such as changes in the fuel characteristics or the effects of engine wear. They are suited for flex-fuel engines and allow the use of multi-injection strategies; hence, they show potential for mobile applications. However, they are based on the assumption that the heat release rate or cylinder pressure correlates well with engine efficiency and emissions and therefore allows a clean and efficient engine operation. With the objective to evaluate the potential of such tracking algorithms, this assumption is investigated for conventional as well as for low-temperature combustion strategies with diesel as fuel of choice. Based on experimental data, exploratory data analysis methods are applied to evaluate how sensitive engine efficiency and emissions are to changes of the heat release rate or cylinder pressure. Furthermore, an extended tracking algorithm is proposed, which can be applied for premixed charge compression ignition combustion concepts. © IMechE 2020. Show more
