Operating Point Optimizer for Integrated Diesel/Cvt Powertrain

Event: International Seminar on Application of Powertrain and Fuel Technologies to Meet Emissions Standards
A technique has been developed to return the optimum emissions and economy from an engine and CVT using integrated electronic control. A supervisory controller is used to place the engine at the optimum operating point for the demanded power. The Ideal Operating Line (IOL) is generated automatically using a simple neural-network-based routine and updated continuously during operation to reflect changing conditions. Results from a simple simulation are presented here which show the effect of the IOL on vehicle performance over the ECE15+EUDC.
