Engine Test­ing - Op­ti­miz­ing Oper­at­ing Pa­ram­e­ters

Test runs for the sim­u­la­tion of op­er­at­ing loads

Engine test bench­es make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the de­vel­op­ment and test­ing of en­gines. New de­signs are test­ed for a wide va­ri­ety of prop­er­ties. These in­clude elec­tri­cal and me­chan­i­cal prop­er­ties and, above all, vi­bra­tion be­hav­ior under res­o­nance loads. The re­quire­ments placed on the mea­sure­ment and anal­y­sis tech­nol­o­gy are cor­re­spond­ing­ly high, es­pe­cial­ly in fol­low-up tests, i.e. in test runs in which the ac­tu­al op­er­at­ing loads are sim­u­lat­ed as pre­cise­ly as pos­si­ble over a longer pe­ri­od of time.

Pre­ci­sion Makes the Dif­fer­ence

Chal­lenges in Engine Test­ing

High-res­o­lu­tion mea­sure­ment data are es­sen­tial in order to ob­tain op­ti­mum re­sults from the cost­ly test se­ries. Espe­cial­ly the anal­y­sis of ro­ta­tion­al vi­bra­tions of mul­ti­ple shafts re­quires a pre­cise mea­sur­ing chain. In ad­di­tion to the mea­sure­ment tech­nol­o­gy re­quire­ments, the great­est chal­lenge is the han­dling of the re­sult­ing large amounts of data. Trig­gered stor­age only makes sense if the log­i­cal con­di­tion of the trig­ger thresh­old is known. Other­wise, it is nec­es­sary to find a com­pro­mise be­tween res­o­lu­tion and sim­plic­i­ty.

Mea­sure­ment Tech­nol­o­gy for Un­com­pro­mis­ing High-Speed Anal­y­sis

Our so­lu­tion for en­gine test­ing

A mea­sure­ment and anal­y­sis sys­tem that can quick­ly an­a­lyze high-res­o­lu­tion in­for­ma­tion with­out com­pro­mise.

The IfTA sys­tems, in con­junc­tion with the award-win­ning AT2 input mod­ule and the anal­y­sis soft­ware IfTA TrendView­er, serve pre­cise­ly this pur­pose. They en­able angle-re­lat­ed eval­u­a­tions of tor­sion­al vi­bra­tions in real time and thus allow the op­ti­miza­tion of im­por­tant sys­tem pa­ram­e­ters.
