Single Cylinder Four Stroke Water Cooled Diesel Engine with Hydraulic Dynamometer Test Rig
IC engines are widely used in
automobile, domestic and industrial sector. They are classified
according to cycle, number of cylinders, arrangement of cylinders, fuel
used, type of ignition, valve arrangement, cooling system. Test rigs are
used to find out the performance of an IC engine. It consists of an IC
Engine, dynamometer, fuel measuring, air intake measuring and various
- To determine specific fuel consumption.
- To determine Brake Horse Power.
- To determine Brake Thermal Efficiency.
- To determine volumetric efficiency measurement.
-Single cylinder, four stroke, vertical water cooled, crank start, diesel engine developing 5 HP at 1500 rpm (Kirloskar New)
-Rope Brake Dynamometer
arrangement with the brake drum fitted on the engine shaft and provided
with cooling water arrangement and spring balance in Kg units.

:The engine is
coupled with electrical alternator with resistance loading arrangement.
Digital voltmeter and digital ammeter is provided.
-Hydraulic Brake Dynamometer
:It consists of
weighing gear, control gear, a dead weight in kg unit suitable for
testing the engine at different speeds. The engine and dynamometer are
directly coupled on a substantial base plate.
-Fuel measuring system consists of a fuel tank, a burette and a three way cock arrangement.
Air intake measuring system
-Air tank fitted with orifice and water manometer.
Measurement of Heat carried
-It consists of
inlet outlet piping with flow control valve, water away by Cooling water
meter. Thermometers are provided to measure the inlet outlet
temperature of water.
-The whole setup is well designed and supported by a good quality painted rigid M.S. Structure.
Exhaust Gas Calorimeter:
Made of Stainless Steel including the
body & the tubes for cooling water circulation and designed to get
maximum temperature difference. The body of the calorimeter is insulated
on all sides to prevent heat losses due to radiation. Thermometers are
provided to measure the temperature of water and gas
