CI Engine Torque Structure Model
The CI core engine torque structure model determines the engine torque by reducing the maximum engine torque potential as these engine conditions vary from nominal:
Start of injection (SOI) timing
Burned fuel mass
Intake manifold gas pressure, temperature, and oxygen percentage
Fuel rail pressure
To account for the effect of post-inject fuel on torque, the model uses a calibrated torque offset table.
To determine the engine torque, the CI core engine torque structure model implements the equations specified in these steps.
Step 1: Determine nominal engine inputs and states
Model uses lookup tables to determine these nominal engine inputs and states as a function of compression stroke injected fuel mass, F, and engine speed, N:
Step 2: Calculate relative engine states
To determine these relative engine states, the model calculates deviations from their nominal values.
For the intake manifold gas pressure, the block uses a pressure ratio to determine the relative state. The pressure ratio is the intake manifold gas pressure to the steady-state operating point gas pressure.
Step 3: Determine efficiency multipliers
Model uses gross indicated mean effective pressure (IMEPG) efficiency multipliers to reduce the maximum average pressure potential of combustion. The efficiency multipliers are lookup tables that are functions of the relative engine states.
Step 4: Determine indicated mean effective cylinder pressure (IMEP) available for torque production
To determine the IMEP available for torque production, the model implements these equations.
The model multiplies the efficiency multipliers from step 3 by the IMEPG. The model implements IMEPG as lookup table that is a function of the compression stroke injected fuel mass, F, and engine speed, N.
Step 5: Account for losses due to friction
To account for friction effects, the model uses the nominal friction mean effective pressure (FMEP) to implement this equation.
The model implements FMEP as lookup table that is a function of the compression stroke injected fuel mass, F, and engine speed, N. To account for the temperature effect on friction, the model use a lookup table that is a function of oil temperature, Toil, and N.
Step 6: Account for pressure loss due to pumping
To account for pressure losses due to pumping, the model uses the nominal pumping mean effective pressure (PMEP) to implement these equations.
The model implements MAP and EMAP as lookup tables that are functions of the compression stroke injected fuel mass, F, and engine speed, N. Under normal operating conditions, PMEP is negative, indicating a loss of cylinder pressure.
Step 7: Account for late fuel injection SOI timing on IMEP
To account for late fuel injection SOI timing on IMEP, ΔIMEPpost, the model uses a lookup table that is a function of the effective pressure post inject SOI timing centroid, SOIpost, and the post inject mass sum, Fpost.
Step 8: Calculate engine brake torque
To calculate the engine brake torque, Tbrake, the model converts the brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) to engine brake torque using these equations. The BMEP calculation accounts for all gross mean effective pressure losses. Vd is displaced cylinder volume. Cps is the number of power strokes per revolution.
In the CI Core Engine and CI Controller blocks, you can represent multiple injections with the start of injection (SOI) and fuel mass inputs to the model. To specify the type of injection, use the Fuel mass injection type identifier parameter.

The model considers

for burned fuel, f_tqs_f_burned_soi_limit parameter to specify the
The model uses this equation to calculate the oxygen percent, O2p. yin,air is the unburned air mass fraction.
The exhaust temperature calculation depends on the torque model. For both torque models, the block implements lookup tables.
Exhaust temperature lookup table is a function of the injected fuel mass and engine speed.
The nominal exhaust temperature, Texhnom, is a product of these exhaust temperature efficiencies:
The exhaust temperature, Texhnom, is offset by a post temperature effect, ΔTpost, that accounts for post and late injections during the expansion and exhaust strokes.
The equations use these variables.
