Objectives This course addresses the control of the complex process of transformation of chemical energy into mechanical energy performed by internal combustion engines. Due to the constantly increasing requirements of internal combustion engines for the use in vehicles, they already became very complex systems, with a variety of sensors and actuators. An introduction to this environment and an overview of the tasks are given in this course. In particular it will be shown how control engineering methods can be used as the key to success.
Subject • Chemical fundamentals of combustion
• By-products of real combustion: emissions (e.g. NOx)
• Characterization of the normal combustion process in internal combustion engines for cars (e.g. gasoline direct injection)
• Injection (e.g., common-rail system)
• Charging systems (e.g. turbocharger)
• Functions of electric motor controls
• Selected control circuits of internal combustion engines (e.g. Lambda-control)
• Diagnosis and monitoring
• After-treatment (e.g. the SCR system)
