  • Patent number: 9068525
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention include an engine control method for controlling an engine having an accessory. In the method, a relationship between a torque of the accessory and a controlled variable corresponding to each rotational speed of the engine is stored in advance. An estimated value of the controlled variable is calculated based on a calculated value of the torque of the accessory and the engine rotational speed by reference to the said relationship. A command value of the controlled variable is calculated based on at least one of the engine rotational speed, opening of a throttle, opening of an accelerator and an air supply pressure. A calculated difference is determined by comparing the estimated value of the controlled variable and the command value of the controlled variable.
