Alternating Current Dynamometer

Alternating Current Dynamometer

The Alternating Current Dynamometer is an engine test facility that mimics the load placed on the engine while it is powering a vehicle. This allows testing of the engine over its entire range of operation in a controlled environment with additional measuring systems needed for research. This includes systems to measure emissions, temperatures and the pressure in each engine cylinder.

This dynamometer allows two engines to be instrumented but only one engine can be operated at a time.
