In this paper, an artificial neural network (ANN) is introduced in order to detect the occurrence of misfire in an internal combustion (IC) engine by analyzing the crankshaft angular velocity. This study presents three reliable misfire detection procedures. In the first two methods, the fault features are extracted using both time domain and frequency domain techniques, and a multilayer perceptron (MLP) serves as the pattern recognition tool for detecting the misfiring cylinder. In the third method, a one-dimensional (1D) convolutional neural network (CNN) that combines feature extraction capability and pattern recognition is adopted for misfire detection. The experimental data are obtained by setting a six in-line diesel engine with different cylinder misfiring to work under representative operating conditions. Finally, all three diagnostic methods achieved satisfactory results, and the 1D CNN achieved the best performance. The current study provides a novel way to detect misfiring in IC engines.
