The engine test cell F, is used to measure performance and analyze emissions of different internal combustion engines, ranging from small hand-held 2-stroke engines to passenger car diesels. There are projects from the combustion group and other institutions which mainly use the cell.
An example of this is a project where Signals and Systems studying feedback from various sensors mounted in the cylinder block on a Volvo D5 engine with the purpose to control the injection event for different load cases.
The cell is also used for educational purposes, e.g. exercises on a gasoline engine with the ability to run in different combustion strategies. Another purpose of this cell is to optimize a motorcycle engine used in the so-called Formula Student project. In a project designed to develop an extremely fuel-efficient vehicles are different, small size engines tested under different operating conditions, for example intermittent operation.
