Review of Injection Duration Theory

Final fuel injection duration is a function of three steps:

• Basic injection duration

• Duration corrections for operating conditions

• Battery voltage correction

Basic injection duration is based on engine load, speed, and a correction factor called fuel trim. Duration corrections for operating conditions are based on the sensors listed below. These are adjustments to the basic injection duration based on changing operating conditions.

• Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT)

• Intake Air Temperature (IAT)

Battery voltage correction is an adjustment to the final injection duration to account for variations in injector opening time caused by changing operating voltage.
