Creating Innovative Laboratory Systems For Engineering & Technical Education

Diesel Engine Lab

Diesel Dynatronix™ is a portable diesel engine performance analysis system comprised of a two-cylinder industrial diesel engine driving an air-cooled dynamometer.

The eddy-current dynamometer is induction-loaded through an integrated 48 volt DC variable-excitation system. A built-in torque arm (1 foot in length) actuates a load cell (calibrated to read in lbs) to provide a direct torque readout in ft-lbs.

Industrial Human-Machine Interface (HMI)

The total system is controlled by a built-in Industrial Human-Machine Interface (HMI) which communicates with an integrated Allen Bradley Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) to control an engine start/stop, throttle position servo drive and dynamometer loading.

The PAC will enable PID feedback control to automatically adjust engine speed based on dynamometer loading (torque). This provides an opportunity to program a variety of operational scenarios that demonstrate the capabilities of diesel power.
