    Applications

    (Gas Fuel System) OH-1 control system is designed to control heavy-duty, lean-burn natural gas engines in urban buses and trucks and other alternative-fueled on-highway vehicles. The highly accurate closed-loop control system helps OEMs meet legislated emission levels, while maintaining diesel-like drivability and excellent fuel economy.

    Key Technologies

    This system is based on key technologies not available in other control systems on the market.

    High Accuracy, Closed-Loop, Lean-Burn Control Strategy results from using proprietary digital electronics and software technology that overcome the difficulties encountered with wide-range oxygen sensors (UEGO) in other systems available today.

    Full-Authority Drive-by-Wire Strategy is made possible by combining Woodward's Flo-Tech throttle and electronic wastegate actuator designs with advanced load control technologies that provide unmatched fuel economy, excellent vehicle drivability, and engine protection from turbo-overspeed and engine overboost conditions.

    Amongst the features are:

    • Precise Open-Loop, Fuel Control Strategy

      This strategy combines additional key sensors and control algorithm technologies that improve the accuracy of volumetric efficient calculations. It also includes advanced manifold filling calculations for handling large transient speed and load changes that must be accommodated in heavy-duty, leanburn, spark-ignited gas engine control systems.

    • Advanced Diagnostic Features

      A powerful tool for development engineers, as well as field technicians, when diagnosing engine or vehicle problems.

    • Model-Based Control Strategy

      This strategy is used to compare actual engine operation with expected values.
