CT 300.09

- Cylinder pressure indication system, suitable for CT 300.03 - CT 300.05 test engines


Technical Description

The system is used in conjunction with the transducer sets CT 300.16, CT 300.17 and the CT 300.18. Each of the sets consists of a pressure transducer and a TDC sensor. It allows pressure measurements to be carried out in the cylinder head of an internal combustion engine and is designed for the CT 300.03, CT 300.04, and CT 300.05 engines. The data is transferred to a PC for further processing. The software produces p-t and p-V diagrams, and also displays the average pressure and the indicated power output. 

The system consists of a software and a measuring amplifier for the pressure transducer and TDC sensor.

Learning Objectives / Experiments

- familiarisation with and use of an electronic cylinder pressure indication system
- p-t diagram (top left)
- p-V diagram (bottom)
- pressure curve for gas cycle (top right)
- determination of indicated power output from p-V diagram
