Using Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) as a measure of engine performance and derived from the engine’s speed, torque and fuel rate, an engine’s optimal operating points allow engineers to develop control systems to regulate the engine close to its optimal operation. This enhanced engine performance positively impacts fuel consumption. This paper illustrates how engineers can take advantage of Maple’s unmatched computation capabilities and MapleSim’s advanced modeling and simulation capabilities to:
- test, and
- validate a control system for optimal engine performance.
