CASE STUDY: Accelerometer-based monitoring and diagnosis of Injector status
Developing a Rapid Control Prototyping system that acquires the signal coming from an accelerometer installed on the injector, relates the signal to the injection command and evaluates whether the signal is compliant with the proper functioning of the injector, publishing analysis results via CAN.
Developing a system that identifies the injection command and relates it to the cycle-by-cycle acquisition of the accelerometer signal, which is also digitally filtered. Thanks to the fast analog and digital inputs, the CAN communication and the FPGA embedded in MIRACLE, it has been possible to meet the requirements. The system monitors if the injector is working properly, and publishes results on CAN every single engine cycle. The user can monitor and record the signals acquired through a web interface.
