Wineman Technology INERTIA-based Dynamometer System Provides Model-Based Control for Transmission Testing

Posted by admin on July 18, 2012

Industry: Transportation

Company: Lubrizol

Challenge: Developing a system to simulate a Class 8 truck in order to test additives that could potentially reduce operating friction in the transmission, ultimately reducing the costs associated with long-term operation, and increasing their overall life.

Solution: Using Wineman Technology INERTIA™ and a “T” configuration dynamometer to provide a simulation system with model-based control that performs all necessary control to simulate the engine of the target vehicle, provides CAN bus shifting of the transmission through the TCM at 16 different speeds and takes measurements of the friction with different fluids, and creates an analysis based on the measurements.
