The common rail injection system has allowed torque and power performance of diesel engines to improve greatly, while reducing fuel consumption and conforming to emissions standards. This paper proposes a simple but effective energy-based model of a common rail injector as a basis for the implementation of the advanced fuel injection control strategies. The proposed model has been validated comparing the simulation results with real experimental data. The obtained results show how the dynamic behavior of the injector is well captured by the model.
