Method for controlling an internal combustion engine

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #6237563.

A method for controlling an internal combustion engine includes the determination of a measured value of an actual torque. An estimated value of the actual torque is determined as a function of operating variables of the internal combustion engine. A correction value is calculated as a function of the estimated value and the measured value of the actual torque. A setpoint value of the torque that is to be set by the air mass flow rate is calculated as a function of a pedal position, which is determined by a pedal position sensor, and of at least one further operating variable, and correction as a function of the correction value. An actuator signal for an actuator element of the internal combustion engine is determined as a function of the corrected setpoint value of the torque.
