The apparatus is for studying the acceleration of an automotive gear system as well as 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 gear output shaft is extended for a study of inertia of a mass and equivalent enertia of the gear system.
The system requires outside water supply for water brake absorber cooling. The unit is on steel frame with adjustable footings.
- Input power, output power and efficiency.
- Effect of speed and load on efficiency.
- Equivalent inertia of the gear.
