Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2878793A2] An engine control apparatus controls an engine (10) that drives a vehicle, the vehicle including: a power generator (12) that is driven by the engine (10), wherein a power generation voltage generated by the power generator (12) is variable; and an electric load (50) that is connected to the power generator (12) and driven with an electric power supplied by the power generator (12), wherein a current flowing through the electric load (50) increases as a voltage applied to the electric load (50) increases. The engine control apparatus includes a control unit (30) that stops the engine (10) in response to an engine stop request for stopping the engine (10) and increases the power generation voltage to a voltage higher than the power generation voltage in a normal case at least before the control unit (30) starts stopping the engine (10).
