Park, J., Han, S., Kasaragod Purushotham, D., Baratta, A. et al., "The Low Level Driver Design to Improve Dwell Timing of Engine Management System," SAE Technical Paper 2015-01-1621, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-01-1621.
In Engine Management System, more accurate control is required to improve engine performance. Especially generating the precise ignition signal has a direct effect on better engine performance.In the beginning of this paper, a basic software structure to synchronize the engine crank signal and generate ignition signals will be explained. Several cases which can generate dwell timing error will be introduced based on this software structure. In addition, each impact level for each error case will be described. For cases of major error, compensation ways will be proposed in order to obtain more accurate dwell timing. The compensation ways by both microcontroller hardware and user software will be explained in detail. In conclusion, this paper will show the accuracy of ignition signal which implements proposed compensation ways that can be improved as compared to conventional ignition signal.A microcontroller mentioned in this paper refers to the Infineon 32-bit TriCore™ MCU, AURIX™, and the peripheral module to implement engine control signals refers to GTM module.
