Investigation on the development and the controllability of a compact multi-functional, fully variable-valve-actuation system

A compact multi-functional, fully variable valve actuation system for six-cylinder engines was proposed. The system can run in both the drive mode and the brake mode of internal-combustion engines. With the help of a distributor, fully variable valve events were achieved with two oil-supply sets, two solenoid valves and one drain valve. The operational parameters of the valve can be adjusted independently for individual cylinders. A numerical study on the controllability of the system was carried out with AVL Hydsim. The calculation results revealed that the timing of the valve opening, the maximum lift, the duration and the time–area value can be adjusted independently or synchronously by controlling the solenoid valves and/or the drain valve. Further correlation analysis results revealed that all the operational parameters of the valve had approximately linear relationships with the corresponding control parameters, and all the correlation coefficients were larger than 0.95, indicating good controllability of the system.
