ECU calibration is the process of determining the optimal calibration tables for an engine. This multistep process involves designing tests, collecting data, analyzing the data, and calibrating lookup tables to model the engine. This process helps to identify the optimal balance of engine performance, emissions, and fuel economy. You can also use models developed during ECU calibration for control design, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing, or powertrain simulation.
