The solution of the problem of designing, developing and further using automated test systems (ATS) of internal combustion engines (ICE) involves, first of all, analyzing a number of important requirements for the development of technical, mathematical, software, information, linguistic and organizational-methodological support of an automated system.
Currently, the need for widespread implementation and operation of automated systems in real test conditions of stations of production plants and design and research institutes imposes some restrictions on the design of automated tuning tools for real technologies of testing various types and modifications of internal combustion engines. This circumstance is based on a sufficiently large number of tested engines, units and assemblies of various modifications, as well as the need to gradually eliminate errors in existing algorithms, including the creation of new test algorithms, in particular, when conducting research and development tests of engines.
Requirements of real engine operating conditions cause a constant increase in the technical level of the modifications produced and lead to the fact that the nature of the cost of testing when designing new types of engines increases each time. These costs are the highest in the absence of a relationship between the levels of production automation and research and development. The result is that the automation of technological processes for testing internal combustion engines is one of the most important tasks of increasing the technical level of production and the quality of the engines produced.
