  • Publication number: 20070199322
    Abstract: Torque being produced by a turbocharged internal combustion engine (12) during acceleration under load is calculated by processing (34) a value for actual boost MAP and a value MAP_NOMINAL selected from a map (32) that contains data values for boost that would prevail during steady state engine operation at a respective speed with the engine developing a respective torque. The selection is made using engine speed N and estimated torque TQI_SP that possesses some inaccuracy due to some disparity between the data value for actual boost and the data value selected from the map. The selection yields a boost disparity value that is used along with the estimated torque to select from a torque map (36) a value for calculated torque that provides a better correlation with actual torque than does the estimated torque during acceleration.

  • Publication number: 20060272606
    Abstract: A motor vehicle engine (10) has a glow plug system (14) for aiding combustion of fuel in combustion chambers of the engine when the engine is cold and an ignition switch (16) is operated to crank the engine. A first circuit signals the cold start aid to commence operation of the cold start aid in anticipation of engine starting. A second circuit indicates a fault in the cold start aid. A third circuit, that includes a warning signal device (38), activates the warning signal device to inform a driver of the vehicle of the indicated fault upon the first circuit having signaled the cold start aid to commence operation and the second circuit having indicated a fault in the cold start aid.

  • Publication number: 20050216174
    Abstract: Desired engine fueling data FQL_MFD_TQL is processed by a derivative variable time function (40) embodied in an algorithm to develop a data value EGR_MFD_DER representing the time derivative of desired fueling. The algorithm comprises certain selectable parameters (EGR_DTS, EGR_MFD_KF, EGR_MFD_KD). An iteration of the algorithm includes processing FQL_MFD_TQL according to a first function (40A) to yield a first data value and according to a second function (40B) to yield a second data value. A third function (40C) subtracts the second data value from the first to yield a data value for the time derivative that forms one input to a map (42). A second input to the map is a data value for mass airflow (MAF_GMS). The map provides data for calculating the set point of an EGR valve (36). The invention provides improved control of EGR during fueling transients.
