This research presents a method to construct a combustion model and a method to optimize some control parameters of diesel engine in order to develop a model-based control system. The construction purpose of the model is to appropriately manage some control parameters to obtain the values of fuel consumption and emission as the engine output objectives. Stepwise method considering multicollinearity was applied to construct combustion model with the polynomial model. Using the experimental data of a single cylinder diesel engine, the model of power, BSFC, , and soot on multiple injection diesel engines was built. The proposed method succesfully developed the model that describes control parameters in relation to the engine outputs. Although many control devices can be mounted to diesel engine, optimization technique is required to utilize this method in finding optimal engine operating conditions efficiently beside the existing development of individual emission control methods. Particle swarm optimization (PSO) was used to calculate control parameters to optimize fuel consumption and emission based on the model. The proposed method is able to calculate control parameters efficiently to optimize evaluation item based on the model. Finally, the model which added PSO then was compiled in a microcontroller. 1. Introduction Currently, energy and environmental pollution have become hot topics. Public and private transportations system plays an important role in people’s life. Vehicle has become one of the most important factors in this system. In Jakarta, it is reported that 70% exhaust gas pollution is from vehicles [1]. Internal combustion engine is the main power of the vehicle. The global challenge in internal combustion engine is the reduction of exhaust gas such as soot, [2, 3], CO, HC, and particulate matter (PM) emissions from vehicles by improving fuel consumption without sacrificing the vehicle performance. On the other side, most internal combustion engine methods that reduce either or soot emissions cause an increase in the other emissions [4]. Recently, with the environmental restrictions and sustainable development, pollution standards have been more and more stringent. For example, in Japan, the standard of diesel engine emission regulation is very high. In 2003 the MOE finalized very stringent 2005 emission standards for both light and heavy vehicles although it remained relaxed through the 1990s. In 2005 heavy-duty emission standards , ) were the most stringent diesel emission regulations in the world. In 2009, this standards were more
