The setup consists of three cylinder, four stroke, Petrol (MPFI) engine connected to eddy current dynamometer for loading& is provided with necessary instruments for combustion pressure and crank-angle measurements. These signals are interfaced to computer through data acquisition device for Pe-PV diagrams. Provision is also made for interfacing airflow, fuel flow, temperatures and load measurement.
The setup enable study of engine performance for brake power, indicated power, frictional power, BMEP, IMEP, brake thermal efficiency, indicated thermal efficiency,
