Small Vehicle Dynamometer
A dynamometer serves to measure power and torque. In our case, these measurements will be taken at the wheels of the SAE Baja vehicle. This gives the University of Wyoming Baja Racing Team a way to quantify their vehicle's potential. While engine size used in the Baja vehicle is constrained (10 horsepower), actual torque delivered to the wheels may vary due to drivetrain efficiency. Currently, industry does not supply a dynamometer for this class of small vehicles. Our senior design project aims to design and construct a chassis dynamometer that assists in design and tuning of the drivetrain and ...
