Internal combustion engine control for improved fuel efficiency

Image Number 10 for United States Patent #8131445.

A variety of methods and arrangements for improving the fuel efficiency of internal combustion engines are described. Generally, an engine is controlled to operate in a skip fire variable displacement mode. Predictive Adaptive control is used to dynamically determine the working cycles to be skipped to provide a desired engine output.
