When it comes to diesels, engine developers are looking for new approaches to fulfill increasing requirements on fuel consumption or emission levels. One example is the application of cylinder pressure based diesel engine management. With the advent of new piezoresistive and optical sensors, closed-loop engine control can be achieved. A dedicated development system was set up at the Institute of Automatic Control at the Darmstadt University of Technology . This system comprised dSPACE Prototyper, dSPACE modular hardware, the indicating software and Simulink models.
