In this paper, a series of closed-loop system identification tests was performed for a variable valve timing cam phaser system on a test bench to obtain a family of linear models for an array of engine speeds and oil pressures. Using engine speed and oil pressure as the system parameters, the family of linear models was translated into a linear parameter varying (LPV) system. The engine speed and oil pressure can be measured in real-time by these sensors equipped on the engine, thus allowing their use as scheduling parameters. An observer-based gain-scheduling controller for the obtained LPV system is then designed based on the numerically efficient convex optimization or linear matrix inequality (LMI) technique. Test bench results show the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
