Online calibration of combustion phase in a diesel engine

In this work, an online calibration mechanism is proposed for the combustion phase in a diesel engine. In particular, a simplified event-based engine model, of which the output predicts the optimum combustion phase, is used to aid the calibration, and the model is updated online along with the engine operation to keep the integrity high so as to improve the quality of optimum combustion phase prediction. It is found this mechanism can be applied to develop an online automated calibration process when the engine system shifts to a new operating point. Engine test results are included to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed mechanism.
