Model Based Control of Throttle, EGR and Wastegate

Due to governmental requirements on low exhaust gas emissions and the drivers request of fast response, it is important to be able to control the gas flow in a spark ignited engine accurately. The air into the cylinder is directly related to the torque generated by the engine. The technique with recirculation of exhaust gases (EGR) affect the air flow into the cylinder and increase the complexity of the control problem. In this thesis a mean value model for a spark ignited engine has been created. The basis was a diesel model from Linköping University that has been modified and parameterized with data from a test cell. The model has been used to study the gas exchange system with respect to the dynamic behaviors and nonlinearities that occur when the three actuators (throttle, wastegate and EGR-valve) are changed. Based on this analysis, some different control strategies have been developed and tested on the model. The presented results show that different control strategies give different behaviors and there is a trade-off between fast torque response and high precision for controlling the EGR-ratio. A control strategy is proposed containing two main feedback loops, prefiltering of the reference signal and a feedforward part.
