  • Patent number: 9261015
    Abstract: A control device for an internal combustion engine. The control device is arranged in a bypass duct between a pressure side and an intake side of a supercharging device. The control device includes a bypass valve comprising a valve-closure body which is configured to be pneumatically actuatable, and a control pressure space. A solenoid valve is configured so that a fluidic connection can be established and closed via the control pressure space between either the pressure side and the intake side or between the pressure side and the atmosphere: When the bypass valve is in a completely open position, the fluidic connection exists at least temporarily via the control pressure space between either the pressure side and the intake side or between the pressure side and the atmosphere. A closure of the fluidic connection brings about a resulting force in a closing direction on the valve-closure body.

  • Publication number: 20130098340
    Abstract: A divert air valve for an internal combustion engine arranged in a bypass channel between a pressure side and a suction side of a supercharging device includes a housing. A bypass valve comprises a first valve closure body. A control pressure chamber is connected with the pressure side through a compensation opening. A solenoid valve comprises a coil body, a magnetic yoke arrangement, an armature, and a second valve closure body which comprises a second spring element and cooperates with the armature. When the solenoid valve is energized and the bypass valve open, a fluidic communication can be established between the pressure side and the suction side or the atmosphere through the control pressure chamber. An overall cross section of the at least one control opening is larger than a cross section of the compensation opening. A closing of the fluidic communication causes a resultant force in a closing direction.
