Application of Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm (MOGA) for Design Optimization of Valve Timing at Various Engine Speeds


This paper aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm Optimization and its practical application on the automobile engine valve timing where the variation of performance parameters required for finest tuning to obtain the optimal engine performances. The primary concern is to acquire the clear picture of the implementation of Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm and the essential of variable valve timing effects on the engine performances in various engine speeds. Majority of the research works in this project were in CAE software environment and method to implement optimization to 1D engine simulation. The paper conducts robust design optimization of CAMPRO 1.6L (S4PH) engine valve timing at various engine speeds using multiobjective genetic algorithm (MOGA) for the future variable valve timing (VVT) system research and development. This paper involves engine modelling in 1D software simulation environment, GT-Power. The GT-Power model is run simultaneously with mode Frontier to perform multiobjective optimization.
