One of the investigated approaches to reduce CO2 emissions in vehicles is the so called downsizing. For realizing downsizing modern air path structures such as the two-stage turbocharging are used to improve the cylinder filling. One of the arising challenges of these innovative architectures is the control algorithm.
In the context of two-stage turbocharging, the Nonlinear Model Predictive Control offers great advantages with respect to the demands on the process control. The talk will give an overview on the selected control approach, which was implemented with ACADO. On top also the evaluation of the control algorithm, which was conducted in a vehicle using on-road tests is part of the talk.
