The necessity of measurement, control and simulation

Many products and processes must now be simulated because a reproducible environment for further development of products is necessary.

This test simulates a control chain of an internal combustion engine comprising a crank-shaft, two camshafts and a belt tensioner. The drive and load simulation is done with the help of electric motors, which are controlled by a PWM module. The engine crankshaft is available to provide the driving torque and the engine’s camshafts can simulate different loads regardless of the independent speed synchronous rotation. With the help of the different angular velocity sensors, torsional vibration analysis can be carried out and give precise information about the dynamic behavior of the system. These can then be used for performance and economy optimization.
