Electronic Engine Controller

Advisors: Dr. W. Anakwa and Dr. D. R. Schertz

Electronic controls are frequently used to optimize the performance of internal combustion engines. Our project focuses on improving the electronic engine controller for the formula car built by the Mechanical Engineering department of Bradley University. A more refined control scheme will maximize engine performance through control of the ignition and injection system. The current model controls only the injection system. The research covers engine modeling, sensor and driver interfacing, and microprocessor selection. This work provides the background for the future development of a working prototype.
