  • Patent number: 10138832
    Abstract: An engine control apparatus and an engine control method are provided. The engine control apparatus includes an accelerator pedal position sensor that measures a position of an accelerator pedal in response to an operation of the accelerator pedal. Additionally, a vehicle controller verifies whether a driver demand torque is equal to or greater than a current engine torque when the position of the accelerator pedal is deviated from a reference position while an engine is operated in a part load mode and determines whether to permit a transition of an engine mode of the engine to a full load mode. An engine controller then transitions the engine mode to the full load mode from the part load mode in response to a control of the vehicle controller.

  • Publication number: 20140121873
    Abstract: Disclosed is a control method that improves response delay by reducing the time taken to determine the engagement type of an engine clutch, by making it possible to determine quickly the engagement type by a slip process under a disadvantageous operating conditions for the synchronization process such as traveling up a slope, traveling in a congestion section, or traveling under to or close to a discharging limit, and can improve fuel efficiency and battery SOC management due to unnecessarily using electric energy when engagement cannot be achieved by the synchronization process.
