Module 4: Introduction to Engine ManagementMOT/ICM-E

Who should attend?

  • This course provides a deeper knowledge on strategies used to manage the engine operation in order to improve performances.
Audience :
  • Engineers and technical staff from design and testing departments wishing to discover the engine management. It is recommended to initially follow modules 1, 2 & 3.

Level : Foundation

Course Content

  • Engine management bases

      • Stakes, definitions, architectures.
      • Automatisms: PID regulators (principle, tuning, gasoline idle speed and Diesel EGR control), new tuning methods and prospects.
      • Diesel and gasoline engines physics applied to the management problem, by the following parameters: air, fuel, torque, engine speed, depollution.
  • Spark ignition engine management

      • Interpreting of the driver's intentions and taking external requirements into account.
      • Taking driving pleasure into account, idle speed.
      • How to meet the set torque in SI.
      • Air management: translating the instruction into an air quantity and throttle driving, airflow measurements with the pressure/velocity strategy, exhaust gas recirculation EGR. Boost Pressure Management. Valve Control Management.
      • Fuel management: fuel supply, starting, evaporative emission system (canister).
      • In Diesel engines, managing the injection pressure and the injected quantity, injector driving, injection modes.
      • Timing management: torque variations driving by the ignition/knocking advance (ignition computing sequence).
  • Depollution & OBD - SI engines

      • Standards: presentation of objectives.
      • Optimization strategies of the parameters that affect depollution (starting, air-fuel ratio control).
      • On Board Diagnostics (OBD): engine control related strategies to meet standards.
  • Diesel engine management

      • How to meet the set torque. Torque control.
      • Air management: translating the instruction into an air quantity, airflow measurements, exhaust gas recirculation EGR. Boost Pressure Management.
      • Fuel management: fuel supply, managing the injection pressure and the injected quantity, injector driving, injection modes.
      • Timing management: torque variations driving by the ignition/knocking advance (ignition computing sequence).
      • Depollution: Diesel particulates filter regeneration, NOx trap, SCR.

Learning Objectives
