An investigation into the isolability of the location of intake and exhaust manifold leaks in heavy duty diesel engines is presented. In particular, established fault detection and isolation (FDI) methods are explored to assess their utility in successfully determining the location of a leak within the air path of an engine equipped with exhaust gas recirculation and an asymmetric twin-scroll turbine. It is further shown how consideration of the system’s variation across multiple operating points can lead to improved ability to isolate the location of leaks in the intake and exhaust manifolds.
