Experimental control of Variable Cam Timing actuators

Abstract : In this paper, we propose a control scheme for the position of Variable Cam Timing (VCT) actuators. We take into account the observation by (Genç et al., 2001) that these actuators feature a significant nonlinearity, but we use a different approach. We perform a model reduction of mechanics, pressure, flows and balance equations. It serves to design an observer used in a motion planning strategy that is ultimately complemented by a tracking controller. Supportive vehicle experimental results are presented.
