Operation of homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engines are very sensitive to timing variations in the combustion of the air-fuel charge mixture and require precise control of the ignition instant to run properly. It is therefore essential to understand the characteristics of timing variations under various operating conditions in order to find suitable control strategies. This paper presents a first step towards the construction of an HCCI engine model aimed at studies on timing… CONTINUE READING
