ENGINE ANALYSIS know the real power that the kart engine produces is very important, both in the development phase, both for the fine tuning. With the software Engine Analysis you can use your acquisition system to have with precision the power and torque curve of your engine as if you were at the dynotest, with the great advantage to be able to analyze the performance that actually is providing the engine on the track, fundmental to find the optimal fine tuning for the engine and to check the real progress of your development.

How it works?

From the data acquired by now from all the acquisitions is possible to estimate the power of the engine, in fact already in many software of the acquisitions this calculation is present, unfortunately however this calculation is simplified and is not very precise in order to have clear technical indications on the performances of the engine. Our software Engine Analysis, on the other hand, reworks the data taking into account of all the factors that influence the calculation of the power curve, thus allowing very precise results of the torque and power curves, which can be used to understand the real effects on the kart engine of the development, and of the fine tuning.

Engine Analysis in fact firstly performs a specific filtering of the acquired data to eliminate the inevitable inaccuracies that occur during acquisition, and which significantly alter the power calculation, moreover considers in the calculation:

- total weight
- effective aerodynamic drag
- engine inertia (crankshaft, flywheel, clutch, ignition)
- gearbox inertia (if present)
- rear wheels inertia (rim and tire) and of rear axle
- effective rolling resistance
- weather conditions (pressure, temperature and humidity)
- effective track conditions (level of grip)
All this allows to obtain a high level of precision and to know the behavior of the engine as if you were at dynotest, with the great advantage, however, to see how the engine actually behaved in the track conditions, where in fact is important to obtain the maximum performance!

The use of the software is very simple, in fact having been studied specifically for the world of art, all the above mentioned magnitudes have been carefully studied and included in the software to allow an immediate calculation simply by importing the data acquired from your acquisition.

In fact there are already the data for the karts of all the main categories, both CIK-FIA (KZ, Mini, Baby, OK, OKJ), both single brand (Iame X30, Vortex Rok, Rotax Max, Easy Kart. The data of all the approved engines, and the data of all the homologated tires, both for aluminum rims and magnesium rims.

At this point you must simply go on track, to do your session, and at the end import the data acquired from your acquisition system in the software Engine Analysis. The software immediately recognizes your acquisition (AIM, UNIPRO, ALFANO, 2D, RKS, STARLANE, COSWORTH, GET) and shows you the lap times you have made, so you can eliminate from the calculation the laps with too many driving errors, and select only the lap that you want to analyze specifically. In addition, the software shows you the channels that has recognized, giving you the ability to easily select the channels with different names from the standard ones.

By starting the calculation in a few seconds, you will have precisely the torque and power curves of your kart engine, just as if you were at dynotest. Moreover if on your acquisition you've also the sensors for the temperatures of water, exhaust gas, and under spark plug, and the lambda, the software also processes these data, to give you the curves in function of the engine speed, very useful for understand the real trend and level of these quantities.

As you can see thanks to the software Engine Analysis from your track session you've achieved the real performance of torque and power of the kart engine, in this way you will understand easily if the technical or set-up solutions that you're trying given an improvement, in fact comparing the results of two different sessions, you will see the engine performance independently from the lap time, in fact the software Engine Analysis taking into account of the weather and grip conditions of the track, is able to compare the curves even if the situations atmospheric and track conditions are differents, avoiding to be fooled by the lap time that can be influenced by these factors.

The comparison of the two sessions clearly shows you how the interventions that you have made have modified the performances of the engine, and this is fundamental in the choices of development and set-up to follow to get the best results.

In addition to the overall calculation of the session, the software also analyzes the single lap to show you the power, the torque, the temperatures of water, exhaust gas, and under spark plug, and the lambda, in the various points of the track.

Finally, the software calculates the throttle opening in the various points of the track, and this can be useful for analyzing the driving, and in the engines with gearbox, calculates the shift gears used during the lap, which can provide important indications for the choice of the final drive ratio.
As you have seen combine the software Engine Analysis with your data acquisition will allow you to enhance your instrument, and to use it also as a dynotest for your kart engine, obtaining fundamental indications for the development and the fine tuning.

The software works with all the main acquisition systems, and usually the sensors normally present are sufficient, however if before of the purchase you want us to verify your files you can fill in the appropriate form Information
