1-3 lists the various types of dynamometer and indicates their applicability for various classes of engine being tested in steady or mild transient states. 1-3 Dynamometers: advantages and disadvantages of available types Dynamometer type Advantages Disadvantages Froude sluice plate Obsolete, but many cheap and reconditioned models in use worldwide, robust Slow response to change in load. Manual control not easy to automate Variable fill water brakes Capable of medium speed load change, automated control, robust and tolerant of overload.

Is the electrical supply voltage liable to vary as the result of other loads on the same circuit? With the exception of air brakes and manually controlled hydraulic machines, all dynamometers are affected by electrical interference and voltage changes. 3. Overloads. If it may be necessary to consider occasional overloading of the machine a hydraulic machine may be preferable, in view of its greater tolerance of such conditions. Check that the torque measuring system has adequate capacity. 10. Is it proposed to use a shaft docking system for coupling engine and dynamometer?

Means a simple matter. Incorrect choice or faulty system design may give rise to a number of problems:        torsional oscillations; vibration of engine or dynamometer; whirling of coupling shaft; damage to engine or dynamometer bearings; excessive wear of shaft line components; catastrophic failure of coupling shafts; engine starting problems. 1 Measurement of torque, power, speed and fuel consumption This whole subject, the coupling of engine and dynamometer, can give rise to more trouble than any other routine aspect of engine testing, and a clear understanding of the many factors involved is desirable.
