Sample text

At any given moment, the difference between the process variable and the set point is used by the control system algorithm (compensator) to determine the desired actuator to drive the system. For example, if the desired coolant temperature set point was 98°C and the actual coolant temperature was 1200°C,then the actuator output specified by the control algorithm would drive a tap to allow more cooling water to pass through a heat exchanger, resulting in a decrease in the temperature process variable.

1 presents the oil and coolant flow required for the cooling of an automatic gearbox oil system. 91 200 200 Although generally reliable, heat exchangers can break down. Some obvious symptoms can be apparent in diagnosing breakdown, such as the following: The mixing of the two agents, for example, the emulsifj4ng of oils and fluids as water enters oil systems. The pressurizing of normally low or unpressurized systems as the higher-pressure agent corrupts the lower-pressure agent through internal leakage in the heat exchanger.

B) Performance limited by maximum permitted shaft torque. (c) Performance limited by maximum permitted power, which is a function of cooling water throughput and maximum permitted temperature rise. (d) Maximum permitted speed. (e) Minimum torque corresponding to residual magnetization, windage, and friction. The following are characteristics of the AC or DC transient dynamometer: (a) Constant torque corresponding to maximum current and excitation. (b) Performance limited by maximum permitted power output of the machine.
