Title : “Model Based Control for Automotive Engines”
This book explains how to build a new control system based on engine models. The book aimed to develop the basic form of model-based control system by coding according to the procedure, and the final chapter also contains application examples.
<Your impression & future plan>
PHVs and HVs will be the mainstream of electric powertrains for automobiles in the future, and engines will continue to be installed. The electrification will further complicate the system, and a new control system including the use of information such as connected cars will be required. We would like to achieve this by fusing a physics-based model with AI technology.
