High precision power analyzer for engine test benches

What is the customer’s measurement task?

This customer operates in the automotive industry and develops future powertrain technologies and related accessories. This includes intensive research and development in the fields of combustion and electrification as well as topics even beyond powertrains. Therefore, the customer needs a measurement system that provides data for further development steps, optimization and verification. Thereby, it is essential for the customer to have a single measurement system for a variety of applications as well as diverse engine and motor types. Hence, the goal of this project was to define one measurement system that fulfills the requirements of all measurement tasks.

Q&A with our customer

Which configuration provided the right system?

The customer’s chassis is a DEWE3-PA8-RM which offers space for up to eight TRION/TRION3 modules. The right configuration for the customer’s application includes two TRION3-1810M-POWER-4, one TRION3-1850-MULTI, one TRION-BASE, and one TRION-CAN module. In addition to that, the system comprises three EPAD2-TH8 type K (static channel expansion directly connected to the chassis) and eight PA-IN-1000-S current transducers.

Where does the customer want to use the system?

The customer is seeking for a typical test bench application. Therefore, the DEWETRON system will find a stationary application. As a result, the customer does not need a built-in display and the size of the chassis is rather insignificant. However, long-term stability, performance and – above all – accuracy are highly important.

How does the customer want to access the system?

XXX — Wird remote control, etc. gebraucht?

Is it necessary to integrate the new system into an existing infrastructure?

XXX — Synchronisation, EtherCat, Schnittstellen, etc.

Which signals/physical units does the customer want to measure?

During the measurement, the system acquires performance parameters, frequency (e.g., torque and rotational speed), temperature, low voltage, vibration, strain, thermoelements, and CAN data. Moreover, the system provides previously acquired data for the customer’s automation CAN bus.

Which sampling rate does the customer need?

XXX — The customer benefits of xxx

What about the bandwidth?

XXX — dsadf

Does the application require sensor power supply?

XXX — Iasdf

How long does the measurement take? Is a triggered measurement necessary?

XXX — asdf

Which measurement channels are required?

XXX — test

Which OXYGEN features are essential? Does the customer use additional software options?

XXX — Power option

How does the further data processing look like?

XXX — Online/offline Analyse? Post-Processing? Reporting?

Why did the customer choose DEWETRON equipment over other products?

The customer appreciates the versatility of the equipment, which is not at odds with performance and accuracy. In course of the time, a true partnership developed and promises a long-term cooperation. Until now, DEWETRON supplied more than 20 power analyzers for sites in Germany, France, Romania, and China. Moreover, the customer appreciates to receive everything from one single source. Like that, DEWETRON for instance regularly calibrates all systems according to ISO 17025 and bridges the guaranteed turnaround time with spare devices to prevent down times.
