Emission

Overview

Emissions tests require repeatable extremely accurate dynamometers to allow the vehicle to be tested under accurately simulated road conditions, whilst in the emission laboratory. The Chassis Dynamometer needs to exceed the demanding performance criteria required by the US EPA directive, FTP 75 / SFTP (US06) EUDC standards. These criteria include:
  • Accurate Road Load simulation to ensure the vehicle is tested under operational conditions
  • Fast, critically damped Inertia simulation response to provide realistic loading of the test vehicle powertrain
  • Accurate synchronisation of multi roller systems to provide "through the road" type conditions
  • Effective parasitic loss compensation

Description

Our Emissions Chassis Dynamometer provides an extremely accurate, repeatable and responsive electrical inertia simulation vehicle test system. The chassis dynamometer utilises an AC motor centrally mounted between the rolls that provides a compact, low maintenance design. All components are mounted on a single substantial steel underframe providing rigidity, low vibration and ease of installation.
The chassis dynamometer control system includes several automated routines to test and validate all the main performance criteria.
Emission chassis dynamometer solutions are also available for truck and motorcycle applications
