Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEMS FOR ADAPTIVE IGNITION ENERGY
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈMES POUR ÉNERGIE D'ALLUMAGE ADAPTATIVE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and systems for an engine igniter excitation system includes an energy storage device, a first adaptive comparator configured to control the storage of an amount of energy in the energy storage device wherein the amount of energy is determined using at least one of an environmental parameter of the engine and a process parameter of the engine. The system also includes a second adaptive comparator communicatively coupled to the energy storage device wherein the second adaptive comparator is configured to control a rate of energy delivery to the energy storage device using at least one of an environmental parameter of the engine and a process parameter of the engine. The system also includes an igniter configured to generate a spark based on the amount of stored energy and the rate of energy delivery.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et des systèmes destinés au système d'excitation du dispositif allumeur d'un moteur, comprenant un dispositif de stockage d'énergie, un premier comparateur adaptatif conçu pour commander le stockage d'une quantité d'énergie dans le dispositif de stockage d'énergie, la quantité d'énergie étant déterminée à l'aide d'au moins un paramètre environnemental du moteur et d'au moins un paramètre de fonctionnement du moteur. Le système comprend également un second comparateur adaptatif couplé de façon communicative au dispositif de stockage d'énergie, ledit second comparateur adaptatif étant conçu pour commander le débit de fourniture d'énergie au dispositif de stockage d'énergie à l'aide d'au moins un paramètre environnemental du moteur et d'au moins un paramètre de fonctionnement du moteur. Le système comprend en outre un dispositif allumeur conçu pour générer une étincelle sur la base de la quantité d'énergie stockée et du débit de la fourniture d'énergie.
