Abstract: It was proposed and designed a modern configuration control type multicontroler-multimodel (MM) that pilots nonlinear combustion process of the diesel engine, needed to adjust the pressure in the intake manifold and air flow circulating through the compressor. The MM simulator developed by the authors allows the implementation of control systems represented by pairs (Mi, Ci) with the Mi candidate closest to the current operating point of the process and the paired controller Ri, for controlling the key parameters of the combustion process. The proposed configuration is built with robust controllers and thus is able to ensure superior performance, tolerance to nonlinearities and parametric/ structural perturbations in the system.

Keywords: Diesel engine, dynamic models, optimal control, robust control, MM simulator.
