Experimental Setup for Engine Modelling and Control Research

Strojarstvo, Vol. 46, No. 1-3, pp. 39-50, 2004
An experimental setup with a gasoline engine has been developed, in order to provide the possibility of validation of control-oriented engine models and verification of different engine and powertrain control strategies. The setup is equipped with a high-bandwith engine-load servosystem, an electronic throttle system, a variety of sensors, and a control computer. The paper describes the experimental setup, and presents the results of identification experiments that confirm the setup functionality.
