  • Publication number: 20190264590
    Abstract: Method for controlling the supply of oil to an internal combustion engine, comprising a procedure for detecting a potentially dangerous condition for the correct operation of an internal combustion engine (1). Said condition is the clogging of an oil filter (3) upstream of the engine (1) or the excessive presence of fuel in the lubricant oil. The detection procedure comprises the steps of: changing the flow rate of oil that transits through the filter (3) and that is processed by a pump (2) for lubricating the engine (1); detecting the time that passes between changing the oil flow rate and a detection of a pre-established variation in a parameter connected at least with the pressure downstream of said filter (3), said variation being determined by said change of the flow rate, said filter (3) being placed upstream of the engine (1); comparing said time with pre-established values.

  • Patent number: 10042033
    Abstract: Described is an apparatus for calibrating a position finding device, having a comparer for comparing a received radio signal pattern to a multitude of reference radio signal patterns, a determiner for determining a signal strength difference, and a determiner for determining a calibration value. The comparer for comparing is configured to select a selection subset from the multitude of reference radio signal patterns by means of a measure of matching between the received radio signal pattern and one reference radio signal pattern, respectively. Determination of the calibration value is based on the signal strength difference, and the determiner for determining the calibration value is further configured to provide the calibration value to the position finding device.

  • Patent number: 9567932
    Abstract: In a method for operating a valve, one valve element of the valve being able to be moved from a first position into a second position by activating an electrically actuatable actuator, the actuator is activated at least once in a first time interval, and is thereafter not activated in a second time interval, and a signal characterizing a strike of the valve element at the first position is ascertained at electrical terminals of the actuator. During the process, an activation energy of the actuator is gradually modified, and a threshold value of the activation energy at which the valve element is just able or is just no longer able to lift is ascertained.

  • Patent number: 9328710
    Abstract: The invention proposes a fuel delivery device for a fuel injection device of an internal combustion engine, having a delivery pump (10) and having at least one high-pressure pump (16). By means of the delivery pump (10), fuel from a storage container (12) is delivered to the suction side of the high-pressure pump (16), and fuel is delivered into a high-pressure region (18) by the high-pressure pump (16). The delivery pump (10) has an adjustable displacement volume, which means that a variable quantity of fuel can be conveyed at the same rotational speed.

  • Patent number: 9284904
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a fuel pressure in a fuel injection system of an internal combustion engine. A setpoint fuel pressure is initially set in the fuel injection system. Next, a first fuel injection and a subsequent second fuel injection are executed at a time interval shorter than a decay time of a pressure wave in the fuel injection system, triggerable by the first fuel injection. In an additional step, a monitored fuel injection quantity, which is injected via the second fuel injection, is ascertained. An action is executed if the monitored fuel injection quantity differs from a setpoint fuel injection quantity, which is predefinable for the setpoint fuel pressure, by more than a limiting value. The invention also relates to a computer program product for executing the method and to a device for monitoring a fuel pressure in a fuel injection system of an internal combustion engine.

  • Patent number: 8866674
    Abstract: At a current position, a measurement packet is determined by a mobile terminal device at a measurement time. The measurement packet includes transmitter identifications of radio transmitters receivable at the current position of the mobile terminal device at the measurement time. By means of reference measurement packets provided to the mobile terminal device, the mobile terminal device itself can determine its current position. Additionally, a deviation of the determined transmitter identifications of the measurement packet from reference transmitter identifications of the reference measurement packets is determined.
