Abstract The purpose of this research is to prevent the abnormal injection process in GDI injector, realize accurate control of the fuel injection quantity and improve the performance of gasoline engine. The mechanical characteristics of the needle valve in a porous GDI injector is analyzed, the needle dynamics model is established, and the needle oscillation process is simulated with a mechanic-electronic-hydraulic integration method with the help of AMEsim software. The validity of the model is verified. The factors that influence the dynamics of the needle valve are analyzed. The results show that the dynamics of needle movement in GDI injector are mainly affected by the seat cone angle and the moving mass of the needle valve. The comprehensively improved structure of GDI injector is proposed based on the needle oscillation analysis. The simulation results show that the dynamic characteristics in GDI injector's needle valve can be significantly improved with the optimized new structure.
