Two self-tuning adaptive algorithms are developed for a heavy-duty diesel engine in order to tune the idle governor to the specific parameters of a given engine. Engine parameters typically vary across engines and over time, thus causing potentially detrimental effects on engine idle speed performance. Self-tuning controllers determine the specific parameters of a given engine, and then adjust the controller algorithm accordingly. Recursive least squares is used to do the parameter identification, whose samples are synchronized with the discrete injection events of the diesel engine for good convergence. Both Minimum Variance and Pole Placement Self-Tuning Regulators are developed and simulated on the nonlinear diesel engine model. The results show successful tuning of each adaptive controller to the specific parameters of a given engine model, with parameter convergence occurring within 30 seconds.
