Today’s Diesel engines are a complex combination of interacting systems which are designed to satisfy the driver’s requests as efficiently and cleanly as possible, whilst using cost effective and reliable components. The automotive industry is understandably conservative and control systems have been evolving over the last decade through increasing numbers of correction factors and specific calibrations. This seminar introduces the Diesel engine systems and some of the control challenges, concluding with a discussion on whether it is time for a more systematic approach to engine control?

This talk is part of the CUED Control Group Seminars series.
