Abstract

Indirect methods have great potential for engine diagnosis. Several methodologies have been proposed in the past in which indirect measurements are used for combustion sensing. This paper presents the results of the application of a methodology developed by the authors in which an accelerometer mounted on the engine block is used to characterize the combustion development in a multi-cylinder common rail diesel engine. The high correlation between accelerometer and in-cylinder pressure data allowed to use the vibration signals to evaluate the angular positions where: the combustion starts, 50% of fuel is burned over an engine cycle (MFB50) and the combustion process ends (MFB95) in two of the engine cylinders. The great accuracy of the predictions (the square value of the correlation coefficient was always higher than 0,97) demonstrated that a single accelerometer can be used in control algorithms for the optimal positioning of the combustion process in more than one cylinder.
