I Need Help In Understanding Electric Motor Dynamometer Testing AC and DC Answered
OK extremely long time reader but first time poster. I need some help understanding dynamometer for electric motors. I would like to test motors under load up to 5HP. I have several motors and I would like to use a selected motor as the generator load. I understand this is a very broad question but I have to start somewhere.
What are some things I might need?
Here are some things I have.
Motor speed controller
Motor torque controller
Electric motors off all sizes 1/3 to 20HP
Some have a brake installed.
Would I need to use a motor with a brake and apply the brake as the load?
I don't want to use water or any fluids as a braking system. Also regenerative would be great also.
I thank you for the help.
