— A control strategy designed to track desired combustion phasing for a homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine during large load transitions is presented in this work. Three inputs are controlled, namely valve timings, fuel injection amount and fuel injection timing. The valve and fuel injection timings are manipulated to track combustion(More)
— The fuel governor control design methodology presented in [1] is extended and experimentally validated on a multicylinder recompression homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine. This strategy regulates desired combustion phasing during load transitions across the HCCI load range. A baseline controller tracks combustion phasing by manipulating(More)
—This work presents a model-based control strategy designed to regulate combustion phasing during load transitions in a recompression homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine. A low-order discrete-time control-oriented model for recompression HCCI combustion is developed that represents the strong thermal and composition coupling between engine(More)
— Reduction of combustion phasing cyclic variability (CV) in homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engines operating lean with late autoignition is experimentally demonstrated. A three–state discrete time model developed in [1] is used for controlling the fuel injection timing and is applied to a multicylinder engine. A key objective of this work(More)
—The cyclic variability (CV) at late phasing conditions in autoignition engines with high residuals limits the operating range of such advanced combustion strategies. A model has been recently proposed by the authors that captures the experimental observations of CV in lean autoignition combustion in a single-cylinder engine. The model is here tuned to(More)
The elastic modulus of thin film ZnO has been measured by attaching a Si-ZnO strip to a ceramic bimorph, deflecting the latter with an electric signal, and measuring the resonance frequencies of the Si-ZnO strip. The resonance frequencies of the Si-ZnO strip depend on the properties of both Si and ZnO. The properties of Si are known, and, thus, the elastic(More)
