  • Publication number: 20110277451
    Abstract: The “imbalance index value” representing the magnitude of the difference among the cylinder-by-cylinder air-fuel ratios (imbalance of air-fuel ratios among cylinders) is acquired based on the output value of the air-fuel ratio sensor disposed above the catalyst. The execution of the emission reduction control is “limited” when the magnitude of the imbalance of air-fuel ratios among cylinders represented by the imbalance index value is the first degree or more, and less than the second degree which is larger than the first degree, and is “prohibited” when it is the second degree or more. As the emission reduction control, a purge control, an EGR control, an Al incremental control, a cold VVT control, a catalyst warm-up delay angle control, an SCV control, and the like can be exemplified. Misfire due to the execution of emission reduction control are suppressed, when the imbalance of air-fuel ratios among cylinders occurs.

  • Patent number: 7284023
    Abstract: In an efficient database management method, a program beforehand defined and registered to a database is invoked by a request to execute database processing. An inputted query request is analyzed to generate an execution module for executing it. When a program not contained in the module is invoked at execution of the module, resources predetermined for use by programs are classified into resources to be set as unavailable resources until a transaction is completed in another program and resources to be set as resources unavailable to other programs until the programs are terminated. When a transaction completion request is received from a program, any resource set as an unavailable resource until the transaction is completed in the program is set as an available resource. Any resource set as unavailable resource until a program associated therewith is terminated is set as an available resource when the program is terminated.

  • Patent number: 5515834
    Abstract: An air-fuel control system for an internal combustion engine is provided in which air-fuel ratio control system a deviation effect due to an amount of evaporated fuel distributed to each cylinder group differing from cylinder group to cylinder group is eliminated when a deviation of air-fuel ratio due to aging of the engine has been learned. A difference value between the air-fuel correction factor and a value of a range of distribution deviation of the air-fuel ratio is obtained so that the difference value is used as the air-fuel correction factor. The difference value is obtained when the engine is determined to be in a purging operation by the first determining means, and when it is determined that learning of the air-fuel ratio correction factor is not completed. The difference value represents a true deviation of the air-fuel ratio due to aging of the engine parts.
