Abstract

In order to fulfill more and more extensive intake air flow range of diesel engine, variable geometry compressor (VGC) is introduced into turbocharged diesel engine. However, due to the variable diffuser vanes angle (DVA), the prediction for the performance of VGC becomes more difficult than normal compressor. In the present study, a prediction model comprised of elliptical equation and PLS (Partial Least Squares) model was proposed to predict the performance of VGC. The speed lines of pressure ratio map and efficiency map with elliptical equation were fitted, and the coefficients of elliptical equation was introduced into PLS model to build the polynomial relationship between the coefficients and relative speed, DVA. And further, the maximal order of polynomical was detailed investigated to reduce the number of sub-coefficients and acceptable fit accuracy simultaneously. The prediction model was validated with sample data and in order to present the superiority in compressor performance prediction, the prediction results of this model were compared with those of look-up table and BPNN. The validation and comparison results show that the prediction accuracy of the new developed model is acceptable, and this model is much more suitable than look-up table and BPNN under the same condition in the VGA performance prediction. Moreover, the new developed prediction model provides a novel and effective prediction solution for VGC and can be used to improve the accuracy of the thermodynamic model for turbocharged diesel engines in the future.
