Development Of An Instrument For Real-Time Computation Of Indicated Mean Effective Pressure

A new instrument capable of computing in real time the per-cycle indicated mean effective pressure (IMEP) of internal combustion engines and compressors has been designed and tested. The values of IMEP obtained with the new instrument were found to be in excellent agreement with values obtained by p...

Summary: A new instrument capable of computing in real time the per-cycle indicated mean effective pressure (IMEP) of internal combustion engines and compressors has been designed and tested. The values of IMEP obtained with the new instrument were found to be in excellent agreement with values obtained by previous postrun data-reduction techniques.
