Abstract (en)

A control apparatus of an internal combustion engine for performing fuel cut control for suspending fuel supply to the internal combustion engine during the operation, comprising at least any one of means for controlling immediately before the fuel cut control to control the torque from the internal combustion engine to driving wheels in a power transmission system from the internal combustion engine to the driving wheels in the decrease direction, immediately before performing the fuel cut control, in case when the fuel cut control execution is determined (steps S5, S6), and means for controlling immediately after the fuel cut control to control the torque from the internal combustion engine to the driving wheels in the power transmission system from the internal combustion engine to the driving wheels in the increase direction, immediately after performing the fuel cut control, in case when the fuel cut control is executed. <IMAGE>
