Study of valve timing diagram
EngineSoft is Labview based software package for engine performance monitoring system. EngineSoft can serve most of the engine testing application needs including monitoring, reporting, data entry, data logging. The software evaluates power, efficiencies, fuel consumption and heat release. It is configurable as per engine set up. Various graphs are obtained at different operating condition. While on line testing of the engine in RUN mode necessary signals are scanned, stored and presented in graph. Stored data file is accessed to view the data graphical and tabular formats. The results and graphs can be printed. The data in excel format can be used for further analysis.
