This paper is concerned with the design of a novel adaptive controller, namely the linear quadratic new extended minimal control synthesis with integral action (LQ-NEMCSI). We present for the first time the analytical proof of asymptotic stability of the controller and experimental evidence of the algorithm effectiveness for controlling an electronic(More)
Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) spark ignition engines equipped with the Common Rail (CR) system strongly improve engine performance in terms of fuel consumption and pollutant emission reduction. As a drawback the fuel pressure in the rail has to be kept as constant as possible to the demanded pressure working set-points in order to achieve the advantages(More)
Electronics has greatly contributed to the development of internal combustion engine. This progress has resulted in reducing environmental degradation, and yet continuing to support improvements in performance. Regarding gasoline engine, a considerable step forward has been achieved by Common Rail (CR) technology able to exactly regulate the injection(More)
Over the last decade, gasoline direct injection engines have proven to be a promising solution to reduce both emission and fuel consumption. The achievement of superior performance strongly relies on its fuel injection system based on the common rail (CR) device. In order to tame the CR pressure dynamics without any a priori knowledge of the plant(More)
This paper is concerned with the implementation and experimental validation of a discrete-time model reference adaptive control strategy, known as Minimal Control Synthesis (MCS) algorithm. After discussing the proof of stability of the algorithm when applied to discretized models of continuous-time plants, the problem of controlling a highly nonlinear(More)

The aim of this paper is to design, analyze, and validate via experiments the control of a double magnet electromechanical valve actuator (EMVA). Such actuators have shown to be a promising solution to actuate engine valves during normal engine cycle. Their use can increase engine power, reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions, and improve(More)
