About the Dyno
All Wheel Drive Mustang MD-150-SE The 2018 MD-AWD-150SE is a fixed wheelbase, linked AWD performance dynamometer.
The AWD-150SE model comes with a K140 Model Eddy Current Power Absorber that has a maximum load capacity of 625 horsepower and a total power measurement capacity of 2,000-hp in AWD Mode.
The key to designing an AWD dynamometer properly is to understand the methods currently being used by manufacturers in the field of AWD drivetrain technology. A dynamometer that can accommodate various types of AWD vehicle transmissions and wheelbases without excessive complication and, more importantly, without risking damage to a client’s AWD system is paramount.
Full-time AWD vehicles are designed to provide maximum performance regardless of road conditions. In cases where traction is less than ideal, a vehicle may be designed to improve stability and traction at the expense of power. This means adding torque to a spinning wheel or retarding of timing. In order to properly test an AWD vehicle for peak performance, an AWD chassis dynamometer must be able to simulate ideal road-load conditions to the vehicle. This approach allows the vehicle to be evaluated under “optimum” operational conditions; whereby torque is distributed to the vehicle’s tires in the same manner that would normally occur when a vehicle has equal traction at all four drive wheels, and is, therefore, operating at peak efficiency.
To achieve this, Mustang’s AWD-150 incorporates a linked drive system that synchronizes the front and back rollers to simulate a dry road condition. Synchronization, or linkage, ensures that the front and rear rollers are always spinning at precisely the same road speed. This process eliminates the possibility of activating a vehicle’s traction control system and also ensures that a vehicle’s torque management system is operating under the assumption that the vehicle is not skidding, turning, or slipping.
Our Specific Dyno has been upgraded with the newest available software and upgraded front roller system to accommodate vehicles with wheelbases from 89-127 inches. We currently have a 20,000 CFM fan setup in front of the car and over 30,000 CFM exhaust fan setup to keep our dyno area as cool and efficient as possible.
