Model-Based Control for Automotive Cold Start Applications J. Karl Hedrick Carlos Zavala Pannag Sanketi Mechanical Engineering Dept. , University of California, Berkeley 2007 CHESS Winter Meeting

Coldstart Challenges Low emission - Suppressing emissions, especially HC HC - Robustness against environmental condition and disturbance 0 Less cost - Calibration effort - Design process, especially verification - Computational load 3/16/2018 - Sensors 100 Speed 25 50 Time[sec] 75 100 0 Speed[km/h] - Driveability : noise & vibration Regulation limit Cumulative HC amount High quality

Coldstart in IC Engines. The problem • The catalyst is not active below temperatures of around 300 C- 400 C • Cold Combustion Chambers and poor vaporization in intake manifold • Oxygen Sensor not active at cold temperatures …more than 90% of Hydrocarbon (HC) emissions is produced during the Coldstart Cycle 3/16/2018

Model Based Approach to Emissions Reduction during Coldstart • Utilizes formal description of the engine to derive efficient ways of control. – Physical Models. Intuitive representation. – Black box models. Non-physical parameters. – Gray models. Combination of the two above • Motivation - improved control - efficient generation of software - software reusability 3/16/2018

Model-Based Integration of Embedded Systems The complexity of automotive systems demands the use of more sophisticated tools for control software verification: • analysis of complex embedded systems • software assurance through modeling in all phases of software development process • Handling hybrid system analysis • Software timing analysis 3/16/2018

Why hybrid models? • Advantages – It accounts for continuous dynamics and discrete events. – It offers a more detailed description compared to mean-value models. • Disadvantages – No analytic solutions for stability analysis – More complicated than mean-value models. – Analysis tools still in development 3/16/2018

Engine Model • Mean Value models of Intake air flow and manifold air mass. (continuous dynamics). • Air and fuel flowing into cylinder calculated for each combustion cycle. (Discrete quantities). • Strokes of engine considered as discrete events using finite state machines (FSM: hybrid). • Torque and pollutants modeled for each combustion cycle. (continuous functions based on events: hybrid). 3/16/2018

Controller Verification of Hybrid Systems • Question of stability and evolution of the states • Model simulations cannot cover all possible trajectories inside a set • Reachability analysis – Tells you how your state space will behave with time starting given a set of initial conditions and bounds on inputs – Very useful in verifying the controller performance 3/16/2018

Example Hybrid Controller • Cumulative tailpipe HC function of both raw HC and catalyst efficiency • Trade off exists between the two objectives • A high level hybrid controller to exploit the trade-off 3/16/2018

Control Hierarchy The hybrid controller switches between the Tcat and HC dynamic surface controllers The Tcat and HC dynamic surface controllers use Texh and AFR respectively The low level Texh and AFR controllers use spark timing and fuel injection rate as the inputs respectively 3/16/2018

Reachable sets Set of Initial states Forward Reachable Set Test: starting from a safe set, remain in the set. 3/16/2018 Target Set Backwards Reachable Set Test: starting from an unsafe set, never touch the set of initial conditions

Backwards reachable set calculation Target Set G(0) Backwards Reachable Set G(t) Now how to compute this set? Turns out that it can be computed by solving a HJI PDE Ref. Tomlin et. al 3/16/2018 Say, the control u wants to keep the system away from target set of states whereas the disturbance d tries to drive the system to the target set G(0). is the set of states for which, for all control actions, there exists a disturbance action which can drive the system to in at most
