Dynamic and Transient Engine Testing Application, System Requirements and Modular Structures 982958
Some problems that will be encountered with research and development in the automotive industry can already be foreseen today. New and more stringent standards as well as the market itself constantly put new demands to the scope of engine and vehicles available.
Increased use of dynamic and transient test stands helps reduction of development times because they enable development testing already at times where only vehicle components are available. Special testing equipment is, however, required for dynamic and transient test stands.
The ranges of application and system prerequisites for dynamic engine test stands also including transient test stands will be described hereafter. These test stands should rather have a modular structure with standardized interfaces to enable adaption to new testing tasks. Integration of the best devices available in the market into an existing test stand should be possible without any problem.
