MM 246 AUTOMOTIVE GEAR SYSTEM EFFICIENCY, Manual Transmission
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The apparatus is table top unit for studying an automotive gear system efficiency under different gear ratios and speeds.

The system uses a manual automotive gear. The input shaft is driven a motor dynamometer via a belt and pulleys. Speed is controlled by an inverter. The output shaft is attached to an eddy current absorber dynamometer.

The system requires outside water supply for water brake absorber cooling. The unit is a bench top with adjustable footings.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Input power, output power and efficiency.
  • Effect of speed and load on efficiency.
