This paper presents novel approaches to nonlinear engine fuel controller and cylinder pressure observer designs based on mean torque production and cylinder-by-cylinder models. Sliding mode controllers and sliding mode observers have shown good robustness and high tracking performance. Accordingly, they are selected in this study to fulfill demanding engine electronic control and onboard diagnostics requirements.
