  • Patent number: 10316782
    Abstract: A pressure reducing valve control apparatus is provided for a fuel supply system having a common rail and a pressure reducing valve to control rail pressure in the common rail by controlling a current supply state of the pressure reducing valve. The pressure reducing valve operates to open a valve body for discharging fuel from the common rail against a biasing force applied in a valve-closing direction by fuel-generated valve-opening force biasing the valve body in a valve-opening direction by the rail pressure and an electromagnetic force generated by current supply to an electromagnetic coil. The ECU starts to open the valve body during a period of holding a hold value by holding current supplied to the electromagnetic coil at a predetermined hold value after starting current supply to the electromagnetic coil. The ECU sets the hold value to increase as the rail pressure decreases.
