Models used to predict the instantaneous injected fuel mass are of varied interest in automotive applications, including for providing inputs to CFD calculations or for engine control. While multiple injection strategies are now commonly used in diesel engines, the overall approach may be susceptible to injection fusion, which is defined as two successive injections that are partly or totally coupled due to the short time interval between each event. In this work, a new model to predict the instantaneous mass flow rate from a diesel injector is proposed based on the analytical solution of a first-order linear dynamic system exposed to an impulsion. Experiments are also conducted to quantify the main injection characteristics of a solenoid indirect-action injector under different injection pressures, backpressures and injection durations, representing a total of 33 different conditions. From these results, a model is proposed and validated against experimental data using a single injection strategy. Then, the model is enhanced to predict split injection with and without injection fusion. Successful comparisons are realized between the model and the experiment. The model is then used to successfully simulate a piezoelectric injector experiencing different levels of fusion available in the literature so as to illustrate the universality of the proposed approach.
