Torque flange in the shaft
The Switch installs a torque flange into the shaft train as an additional measuring system. A resulting benefit is the verification of the efficiency determined through measurement of the electrical parameters.
Moreover, effects resulting from modifications to the engine or generator or from simulation of different loading scenarios can be determined fast and precisely. However, the main parameter for determining the efficiency is the transmitted power. Through direct measurement of torque and rotational speed of in the shaft train transmitted power, measurement uncertainty is small.
