Abstract

Diesel airpath controllers are required to deliver good tracking performance whilst satisfying operational constraints and physical limitations of the actuators. Due to explicit constraint handling capabilities, model predictive controllers (MPC) have been successfully deployed in diesel airpath applications. Previous MPC implementations have considered instantaneous constraints on engine-out emissions in order to meet legislated emissions regulations. However, the emissions standards are specified over a drive cycle, and hence, can be satisfied on average rather than just instantaneously, potentially allowing the controller to exploit the trade-off between emissions and fuel economy. In thi..
