Control Systems of Moving Objects


The paper is devoted to the analysis of injection engine as an object of automatic control by a built-in microprocessor system. The schematic diagram of the engine is presented; controlled, measured, and input variables are indicated; a mathematical model of the engine oriented to the use in analysis and synthesis of control systems is described. Transient processes and static characteristics of the injection engine V8 of Chervolet Corvette are given as an example.
