Project Type: Advanced Combustion Analysis Test Cell
Customer: United States Department of Energy
Dynamometer: 75Hp AccuDyne AC Motoring dynamometer Control System: DynoLAB
Control System: Semtech DS Emissions Analysis System
SAKOR designed this cell for the United States Department of Energy ReFuel Laboratory in Denver, which uses it to determine fuel characteristics and to perform advanced combustion analysis. This testing is typically done using a single cylinder research engine. However, the flexibility of the DynoLAB test automation system and the AccuDyne AC dynamometer allows for testing of engines ranging from one to four cylinders with power levels up to 75 Hp (continuous).
