ABSTRACT
Valve train control is one of the best strategies for optimizing efficiency and emissions of Internal Combustion (IC) engines. Applications of solenoid valve actuators in (IC) engines can facilitate operations such as variable valve timing and variable valve lifting for improved the engine performance, fuel economy and reduce emission, the electromechanical valve actuator (EMVA) uses solenoid to actuate valve movement independently for the application of (IC) engine. In this work presents the effects of design and operating parameters on the system dynamic performances of the actuator and the proposed an (EMVA) structure by incorporating the hybrid magneto-motive force (MMF) implementation in which the magnetic flux is combined by the coil excitation and permanent magnets. A two-degree-of-freedom lumped parameter model is used to simulate the response of valve actuator system in the opening and closing. The model and control of an electromagnetic valve (EMV) are described. This is done using electromagnetic force to open and close the valve and a controller regulates the motion specifications required. The developments controller is based on a state-space description of the actuator that is derived based on physical principles and parameter identification. Linear-quadratic regulator design (LQR) optimal control is designed with the evaluation reasonable the performance and energy of (EMV) valve are obtained with the design.
