If realized, the camless internal combustion engine offers significant advantages over the engines on the market today in the areas of efficiency, fuel economy, and emissions reduction (Ashhab et al., 2000; Demmelbauer-Ebner et al., 1991; Gould et al., 1991; Lenz et al.; Stone and Kwan, 1989). In previous work completed, a mathematical model of an electrohydraulic gas exchange valve actuator was created. For this system to be useful, the ability to control it must be demonstrated. Using a cosimulation approach, an adaptive controller was developed and simulated. The results from these simulations showed that the controller was able to converge on the desired output.
