The objective of our Design Project is to design and construct a laboratory arrangement, for the Internal Combustion Engine course offered at Northeastern University, to illustrate engine control management. The target of this laboratory is to construct both experiments and displays various engine related control systems, from the purely mechanical to the most novel electro-mechanical devices. The laboratory will enhance the experimental facilities of the Mechanical Engineering Department by relating students theoretical classwork with hands-on exercises. At present time, such a laboratolry does not exist. Our repod exadnes the multiple facets of engine ignitions ystems, engine sensors, fuel pumps, and fuel injection systems. Each category of systems was researched individually by its numerous designs, with each design serving a different application in the automotive industry. The different components of each sub-system within the internal combustible engine will be on display for use in experiments and as visual aids in the laboratory. Experience gained in this laboratory facility will benefit mechanical engineering students at Northeastern University.
