Analysis of Mean Value Engine Model with Emphasis on Intake Manifold Thermal Effects

Proceedings of 2003 IEEE Conference on Control Applications (CCA 2003), pp. 161-166, Istanbul, Turkey, 2003
A mean value engine model with a polytropic intake manifold sub-model is presented and experimentally validated. A detailed comparative algebraic analysis of the engine model for the special cases of isothermal and adiabatic manifold heat transfers is carried out based on the linearized form of the engine model. The analysis is illustrated by simulation results for different engine operating modes.
