The device allows the physical quantity used for the feedback-governing of the supercharging pressure of an internal combustion engine to be corrected as a function of ambient air temperature.
A device for governing pressure of supercharging air of an internal combustion engine which is provided with at least one feed duct having a turbocharger positioned therein, at least one throttle valve for controlling airflow to the internal combustion engine, and at least one exhaust duct having a
A device for governing pressure of supercharging air of an internal combustion engine which is provided with at least one feed duct having a turbocharger positioned therein, at least one throttle valve for controlling airflow to the internal combustion engine, and at least one exhaust duct having a turbine positioned therein, the turbine being driven by exhaust gases discharged from the internal combustion engine and the turbine in turn driving the turbocharger, said device comprising first valve means positioned between the internal combustion engine and the turbine for regulating the flow of exhaust gases to the turbine and for influencing the pressure of the supercharging air, an actuator being connected to said first valve means for opening and closing said first valve means, a plurality of sensors for sensing preselected engine parameters which include at least temperature of ambient air being fed to the engine, second valve means being connected with said actuator and with a programmed microcomputer for controlling said actuator, said programmed microcomputer having a permanent memory stored with computation programs relating to algorithms for governing supercharging pressure in response to predetermined engine parameters, the permanent memory of the microcomputer having tables of data of energizing times and rest times of said second valve means responsive to at least a couple of the preselected engine parameters, the microcomputer being programmed to determine the excitation times and the rest times of said second valve means on the basis of present values of the engine parameters received from the sensors, and further to determine a value of feedback-control quantity based upon the present values of the engine parameters and correction coefficients which correspond to the ambient air temperature whereby the microcomputer is programmed to multiply the correction coefficients by the value of the feedback-control quality to determine if the computed value is greater or less than a predetermined ambient air temperature and if less than the predetermined air temperature then said second valve means is actuated to increase the supercharging pressure.
