Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19741820A1] Combustion chamber pressure variation in each cylinder (10-13) is recorded by sensors (14-17).- DETAILED DESCRIPTION - The pressure is used to determine at least one of the valve control periods, 'exhaust opened', 'exhaust closed', 'inlet opened', 'inlet closed', as a function of crankshaft angle, detected by a further sensor, from which the events characterizing the valve control periods are evaluated. When the expansion line of the pressure curve changes so that the variation of pressure gradient with increasing volume or increasing crankshaft angle changes sign, 'exhaust opened' is inferred
