Charge Air Temperature conditioning

Intercooler

Charge air temperature has a significant influence on the thermodynamic and mechanical behavior of an internal combustion engine (e.g. BSFC and emissions). To increase test cell utilization, charge air temperature has to be controlled exactly. FEV’s charge air conditioning system “InterCooler” performs this function automatically by controlling the charge air temperature, independent of climate and engine operating conditions. FEV InterCooler offers a compact and space-saving design. Installation is quick and easy. Only the power supply and a control line as well as the cooling system and piping between the engine and the system need to be connected. For communication with the test bench computer several interfaces (TCP/ IP-CSM, TCP/IP-AK, EtherCat, CANraw, ProfiBus) are available which enable direct connection to test bench computers that support these interfaces. For quality assurance we supply the FEV InterCooler pre-commissioned and with pre-defined PID parameters to guarantee quick and easy installation on site.
