Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0916828A2] The method involves determining a switching point within a time window, at which the moving member in the solenoid valve reaches a certain position. The voltage applied to the solenoid valve within the time window is controlled to an adjustable set value. The set value for the voltage is preset based on a current regulator. An Independent claim is included for an apparatus for controlling a solenoid valve for fuel dispensing in an IC engine.
