Comprehensive engine testing

  • 03-Sep-2008 02:45 EDT

MTT Moteurtest is an engine test center for light- and heavy-duty vehicles and light aircraft. Testing services include standard endurance and technical tests on a full engine or specific part. Technologies can be adapted to any requirement or specification and can combine a large number of constraints in a minimum time frame. The facility can test up to 8000 rpm with a maximum torque of 3500 N·m (2581 lb·ft) and can accommodate complete exhaust systems. Some cells include combustive air, controlled in temperature and hygrometry, for testing air intake systems and calibrated performance. The firm can also perform a five-gas-exhaust analysis and can test with any fuel including gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, methane gas, and LPG/GPL.

Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
With the new SCALEXIO LabBox, dSPACE offers a compact high-performance system for hardware-in-the-loop tests.
The accuracy of an NO gas sensor (the primary component of NOx) can be compromised when exposed to ambient temperatures above 86°F (30°C) and significantly more so above 104°F (40°C).
