  4. Abstract:
  5. This paper investigates the control of diesel engines comprising two actuators: exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve and variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) to mitigate the exhaust emissions. In contrast to conventional control techniques, multi-model predictive control (MMPC) algorithm is employed for control purposes. With the help of proposed scheme, constraints of the control problem is also considered and nonlinear model to enhance performance is utilized. In doing so, new controller tries to fulfill a compromise between fuel consumption and torque response by regulating air-to-fuel ratio and EGR fraction to decrease pollutants emission especially nitrogen oxides (NOx). The dynamic behavior of MMPC controller is compared with the controller based on the generalized predictive control (GPC). The feasibility of the proposed scheme has been verified through simulation results
