  • Patent number: 10823104
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to detect variations between the quantities of fuel injected into cylinders by fuel injection devices and correct the fuel injection quantity variation while minimizing the computational load on a drive device and the level of performance required of a pressure sensor. A drive device for fuel injection devices according to the present invention performs control wherein movable valves are driven so that predetermined quantities of fuel are injected by applying, for the duration of a set energization time, a current that will reach an energization current to solenoids of a plurality of fuel injection devices which open/close fuel flow paths. The drive device is characterized in that the set energization time or energization current is corrected on the basis of a pressure detection value from a pressure sensor that is attached to a fuel supply pipe disposed upstream of the plurality of fuel injection devices.

  • Patent number: 10557445
    Abstract: Provided is a high-pressure fuel supply device for an internal combustion engine, said device being capable of suppressing noise from collisions of a plunger rod and an air intake valve. A high-pressure fuel pump 108 comprises an intake valve, a plunger rod that is formed as a separate element from the intake valve, an elastic member that biases the plunger rod in the valve-opening direction of the intake valve, and a solenoid that draws the plunger rod in the valve-closing direction of the intake valve when supplied with electricity. A control device 101 has a first control unit that applies a first current to the solenoid in order to close the intake valve, and a second control unit that applies a second current to the solenoid before the plunger rod collides with the intake valve due to the biasing force of the elastic member.
