Item Name

VCR Engine Test Setup (Computerised) (234)

The setup consists of single cylinder, four stroke, VCR (Variable Compression Ratio) Diesel engine connected to eddy current dynamometer for loading. A tilting cylinder block arrangement is used for varying the compression ratio without stopping the engine and without altering the combustion chamber geometry. Setup is provided with necessary instruments for combustion pressure and crank-angle measurements. These signals are interfaced to computer through data acquisition device for Pθ-PV diagrams. Provision is also made for interfacing airflow, fuel flow, temperatures and load measurement. The set up has stand-alone panel box consisting of air box, two fuel tanks for duel fuel test, manometer, fuel measuring unit, transmitters for air and fuel flow measurements, process indicator and engine indicator. Rotameters are provided for cooling water and calorimeter water flow measurement.

The setup enables study of VCR engine performance for brake power, indicated power, frictional power, BMEP, IMEP, brake thermal efficiency, indicated thermal efficiency, Mechanical efficiency, volumetric efficiency, specific fuel consumption, A/F ratio and heat balance. Labview based Engine Performance Analysis software package Enginesoft is provided for on line performance evaluation.

A computerized Diesel injection pressure measurement is optionally provided.
