AbstractFor efficient and stable operation of an internal combustion engine a multitude of complex control tasks have to be handled. In this lecture the application of model predictive control for these control challenges is introduced.
Objective- Learn how to design and implement model predictive control algorithms for the example system “combustion engine”. Get to know the entire process from simulation-based control development to the application at a real-world combustion engine.
- Deepen the knowledge concerning the necessary control algorithms for a combustion engine.
Content- Physical phenomena and models for processes of the combustion engine such as air path and fuel path
- Analysis of the control tasks arising in engine systems
- Case studies for the application of model predictive control for combustion engines with the goal to handle the complex, multivariable system dynamics
- Fundamentals of the implementation of model predictive control
Lecture notesLecture slides will be provided after each lecture.
