Duty cycle

1. User working point(s) analysis = Duty cycle

This allows computing the machine performance all over the considered duty cycle.

This duty cycle must be defined by using the next field: "Duty cycle description" and by clicking on the button "Set values".

Two ways are possible to fill in the table: either filling the table line by line or by importing an excel file in which all the working point of the duty cycle are defined.

Note: A working point is defined by a time, a speed and a mechanical torque.

User working point analysis = Duty cycle
1 Select the “Duty cycle” option
2 Click in the button “Set values” of the field “Duty cycle” to open a dialog box to define the duty cycle.Refer to the next illustration which shows how to fill the Duty cycle table.
3 Button to validate and take into account the user input data
4 Button to run the computations
Once the efficiency map is computed and displayed all the additional computations dealing with the user working points are got instantaneously.

1 Dialog box opened after having clicked on the button “Set values” in the field “Cycle description”
2 Browse the folder to select an Excel file in which the duty cycle is described.
3 Button to refresh the table data when the considered Excel file has been modified
4 Fields to be filled in with data to describe the duty cycle to be taken into account
Note: A template corresponding to the Excel file format to be considered is stored in the folder Resource/ Template. An example of this template is displayed below.
