If you have the Deep Learning Toolbox™ and Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™, you can generate a dynamic deep learning spark-ignition (SI) engine model to use for powertrain control, diagnostic, and estimator algorithm design. For example, fit a deep learning model to measured engine-out transient emissions data and use it for aftertreatment control and diagnostic algorithm development. The deep learning SI engine models the dynamic engine behavior from measured laboratory data or a high-fidelity engine model.
To train the deep learning SI engine model, Powertrain Blockset™ uses this SI engine data.
|Input Data||Output Data|
Intake manifold gas pressure
Intake manifold gas temperature
Intake air mass flow
Exhaust gas temperature at exhaust manifold inlet
Engine out (EO) hydrocarbon (HC) emission mass flow
EO carbon monoxide (CO) emission mass flow
EO nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions (NOx) emission mass flow
EO carbon dioxide (CO2) emission mass flow
To generate the deep learning engine model, follow these steps.
If it is not already opened, open the reference application.
Double-click Generate Deep Learning Engine Model. Generating the model can take several hours.
By default, to train the deep learning engine model, the reference application generates design of experiment (DoE) response data from the SI Core Engine block. Alternatively, you can use engine data generated by Powertrain Blockset from Gamma Technologies LLC engine models or other high-fidelity engine models.
View the training progress window to see the iteration or stop the training.
As the training runs, Powertrain Blockset logs this data in the base workspace.
m-by-2 array of engine inputs
m-by-11 array of engine
Powertrain Blockset uses half the data to train the model and half to test the model.
After you generate the deep learning SI model, view the results.
For each engine output, a plot displays the SI engine deep learning model (Pred) and the test data (Test). For example, this plot shows the comparison for dynamic engine-out CO emissions mass flow.
The Simulation Data Inspector displays the SI engine deep learning model speed, torque commands, fuel mass flow rate, and shaft speed.
You can use the deep learning SI model,
SiDLEngine, as an
engine plant model variant in the conventional vehicle and hybrid electric
vehicle (HEV) reference applications. For example, in the conventional vehicle
reference application, on the Modeling tab, in the
Design section, open the Variant Manager. Navigate to
Passenger Car > Engine. Right-click to set
SiDLEngine as the
To fit your own deep learning SI engine model or adjust the deep learning
training settings, use the
FitSiEngineLSTM.m script in the
reference application project folder.
