Energy Balances

Internal combustion engines in road traffic convert only approx. 30-40 % of the energy supplied via the fuel into mechanical energy. The rest must be dissipated as heat energy via exhaust gas, coolant or convection at the surfaces. This creates different temperature zones in the engine, and the engine oil acts as another heat-transfer medium between them.

 

The exact acquisition of the heat flows using the media of oil, water and air is a challenge for the measuring technology. Using optimized measuring setups and process flows, we achieve highest precision and repeat accuracy in the heat balancing of internal combustion engines.
