Diesel-natural gas dual fuel engine has gained increasing interesting in recent years because of its excellent power and economy. However, the reliability of the dual fuel engine does not meet the requirements of practical application. The piston maximun temperature (PMT) of the dual fuel engine easily exceeds the security border. In view of this, this paper proposes a method based on the lasso regression to estimate the PMT of the dual fuel engine, so as to real-timely monitor the health state of the dual fuel engine. Specifically, PMTs under some working conditions were offline acquired by the finite element analysis with ANSYS. A model is presented to describe the relationship between the PMT and some indirect engine variables, including NOx emission, excess air coefficient, engine speed, and inlet pressure, and the model parameters are optimized using the lasso regression algorithm, which can be easily implemented by the electronic control unit (ECU). Finally, the model is employed to real-timely estimate the PMT of the dual fuel engine. Experiments reveal that the proposed model produces satisfying predictions with deviations less than 10 °C.
