    • Focuses on the transient control of gasoline engines
    • Details how to use spotlighted control technology to bring new power to conventional combustion engine technology
    • Uses a good balance of control theory and engine design fields knowledge to help readers comprehend the latest research activities in engine control
    • Presents deep research and practice in transient performance, which is an important factor of engine efficiency and emission performance
    • Includes design problems and examples written in academic tone and using practical applications



    Transient Control of Gasoline Engines drives to move progress forward. A stimulating examination of car electronics and digital processing technology, this book chronicles significant advances that have occurred over the past 20 years (including the change from combustion engines to computerized machines) and presents new and exciting ways to enhance engine efficiency using real-time control technology.

    Dedicated to improving the emissions of automotive powertrains, it provides an introduction to modeling, control design, and test bench, and explains the fundamentals of modeling and control design for engine transient operation. It also presents a model-based transient control design methodology from the perspective of the dynamical system control theory.

    Written with graduate students in mind, this book:

    • Addresses issues relevant to transient operation, cycle-to-cycle transient, and cylinder-to-cylinder balancing
    • Examines the real-time optimizing control problem (receding horizon optimization, for torque tracking control and speed control)
    • Covers three benchmark problems related to the modeling and control of gasoline engines: engine start control, identification of the engines, and the boundary modeling and extreme condition control

    Transient Control of Gasoline Engines describes the behavior of engine dynamics operated at transient mode as a dynamical system and employs the advanced control theory to design a real-time control strategy that can be used to improve efficiency and emission performance overall. Geared toward graduate students, this book also serves as a trusted source for researchers and practitioners focused on engine and engine electronics design, car electronics, and control engineering.
