  • Patent number: 10995691
    Abstract: A method and a device for controlling knocking in an internal combustion engine. A knock signal of a cylinder of the internal combustion engine is measured by a knock sensor and from that, a knock feature is generated. The knock feature is compared to a reference level in order to classify a combustion as a knocking or non-knocking combustion. The reference level is formed in consideration of a plurality of corrected knock features, the corrected knock features being formed from the knock features by determining map values from a program map as a function of operating parameters of the internal combustion engine and linking them additively, or by carrying out a low-pass filtering, or by determining map values from a program map as a function of operating parameters of the internal combustion engine and linking them additively and carrying out a low-pass filtering.

  • Patent number: 10994717
    Abstract: In a solenoid valve for a hydraulic braking system, a valve body has a receiving region which at least partially accommodates a guide assembly, the valve armature running axially through at least one through-opening of the guide assembly. A mechanical detent device is formed between the guide assembly and the valve armature, the detent device releasing the valve armature when the latter is in a de-energised closed position, such that the restoring spring drives the valve armature and pushes the closing element sealingly into the valve seat to produce a sealing function, and said detent device fixes the valve armature in a de-energised open position against the force of the restoring spring in an axial detent position, such that the closing element is raised from the valve seat.

  • Patent number: 10995644
    Abstract: A method for controlling a fill level of an exhaust gas component store of a catalytic converter of an internal combustion engine, in which the fill level is controlled by using a system model, which includes a catalytic converter model, and uncertainties of measurement or model variables, which influence the control of the fill level, being corrected by an adaptation that is based on signals of an exhaust-gas probe situated on the output side of the catalytic converter. The method provides that an adaptation requirement is learned as a function of the operating point, the learned adaptation requirement is stored as a function of the operating point, and a distinction is made based on the operating point dependency between different causes of the uncertainties. Also described is a control unit to carry out the method.
