Customizable for Prototyping, Researching, Developing, and Calibrating Combustion Engines

Engine Control System

LHP/ECS provides a full-authority research engine controller based on the powerful multi-gigahertz, multi-core, and expandable NI PXI platform. The LHP ECS comes fully integrated with an engine control software example that you can use as a baseline to quickly get your engine up and running. The software is openly programmable to allow customization for your specific application. When combined with a combustion analysis option, the ECS becomes a fully integrated off-the-shelf next-cycle control system capable of calculating pressure-based combustion parameters quickly enough to be used as closed-loop feedback in the real-time engine control algorithm.



Be in Control of Your Testing  

  • Ideal for prototyping, researching, developing, and calibrating internal combustion engines
  • Modular approach scales both processing power and I/O to any engine, including multi-fuel
  • NI LabVIEW graphical system design software for intuitive programming
  • Integrated FPGAs for high performance and reconfigurability between applications
  • Both portable and higher performance stationary systems available
  • Ready-to-use, tunable software and custom software available



Combustion Analysis Option


Combustion analysis options add dedicated software and hardware to your system for performing pressure-based combustion calculations. 
  1. Includes NI CAS Software and hardware for up to 16 high-speed (500 kHz) synchronous/asynchronous channels.
  2. Includes NI CAS Software and hardware for up to 16 high-speed (500 kHz) synchronous/asynchronous channels and 64 medium-speed (≤1 kHz) channels.
  3. Includes NI CAS Software and hardware for up to 16 high-speed synchronous channels, 16 high-speed asynchronous channels, and 128 medium-speed channels.

Looking for a Smaller Engine Control System?


The RPU is built specifically for Mathworks Simulink giving embedded systems engineers an environment to develop controls algorithms. 




The Rapid Prototype Unit (RPU) supports model-in-the-loop (MIL) and software-in-the-loop (SIL) testing. Users can exercise Simulink models by running them on simulated hardware with plant in the loop. Verify your models with an RPU.
