  • Publication number: 20190168753
    Abstract: Systems and apparatuses include a controller structured to: receive information indicative of an operating condition of a vehicle subsystem, receive information indicative of an external static condition, and receive information indicative of an external dynamic condition. The system is further configured to predict a fuel cut event based on at least one of the operating condition of the vehicle subsystem, the external static condition, and the external dynamic condition. Responsive to predicting a fuel cut event, the controller is structured to modulate at least one of a torque or a speed of the engine based on the operating condition of the vehicle subsystem and at least one of the information indicative of the external static condition and the external dynamic condition.

  • Patent number: 10302034
    Abstract: One exemplary embodiment is a method of operating a system comprising an internal combustion engine system, and an exhaust aftertreatment system comprising an SCR catalyst, and an electronic control system. The method comprises operating the electronic control system to perform the acts of determining a predicted temperature value indicative of a predicted future temperature of the SCR catalyst, determining a temperature profile value using the predicted temperature value and a current temperature value indicative of a current temperature of the SCR catalyst, operating a controller to provide an output indicating a difference between the temperature profile value and a temperature target, determining a heat request using the output of the controller, filtering the heat request using a prediction horizon, and controlling operation of the engine system using the filtered heat request to increase a temperature of the SCR catalyst.

  • Patent number: 10012158
    Abstract: System, apparatus, and methods are disclosed for controlling one or more actuators of an air handling system of an internal combustion engine. The one or more actuators are controlled in response to one or more feedforward references that are adjusted by a reference governor that predicts one or more operating parameters and imposes constraints on the one or more feedforward references to reduce the potential for violating limits on the one or more operating parameters.

  • Patent number: 9482169
    Abstract: System, apparatus, and methods are disclosed for a computing a first set of parameters based on operational states of an internal combustion engine and an air handling system, a second set of parameters based on a linear time varying model, and one or more control commands based upon a minimization or maximization of a cost function over a prediction horizon, the second set of parameters, and at least one physical constraint of the internal combustion engine, and controlling one or more operations based at least in part upon the one or more control commands. The acts of determining the first and second set of parameters and computing the one or more control commands are repeated over a plurality of time periods over which the first set of parameters and the second set of parameters are time variant.

  • Patent number: 9475398
    Abstract: A battery management system for a rechargeable battery includes a battery monitor configured to acquire data regarding the rechargeable battery and a processor. The processor is configured to determine an initial state of charge of the battery based on the acquired data; determine a target state of charge for the battery; determine a plurality of charging solutions to achieve the target state of charge based on an optimization of one variable of the battery of a plurality of variables of the battery; narrow the plurality of charging solutions to charging solutions that meet an objective of each of the remaining plurality of variables of the battery; select the charging solution that corresponds with the fastest charge time for the battery from the charging solutions that meet the objective of each of the plurality of battery variables; and command a controller to regulate an amount of charge to the battery in accord with the selected charging solution.
