The engine control process is usually carried out based on array control algorithms with a fixed mesh size. Modification of control algorithms based on experimental test data requires the use of programs that make it possible to determine the control algorithm parameters. The article presents the methodology of determining the compression-ignition engine control algorithms. A custom computer program was presented, which was used to determine the control algorithm parameters. These control algorithms values were determined based on the results of experimental engine tests, and using the presented program. The parameters were introduced into the laboratory compression-ignition engine controller. The experimental tests performed on the engine, whose operation was managed by the programmed laboratory controller, confirmed the usefulness of the proposed methodology for determining input data of control algorithms.
