Integrated Control of Dynamometer Using LabVIEW Platform - Hardware 2011-36-0071
The paper addresses the development of an electromagnetic brake control and data capture of torque and rotation, using a graphical interface implemented in LabVIEW for evaluating the performance of internal combustion engines. To control the electromagnetic brake is used like a SMPS Buck, and programming interface developed in LabView is responsible for generating the pulses of voltage that feeds the brake and the data capture system. This project started with the need for improved equipment control and data acquisition dynamometers, eddy-current, installed at the Automotive Laboratory, Instituto Federal de Santa Catarina (IFSC). In the system of control and data acquisition parameters can be added as temperatures, pressures etc., further improving the precision of torque and power these devices.
