design and build..The AA80E Transmission test Bench

Well in Order to Fully test and debug the AA80E Controller, AA80E transmission, and also control functions (paddle shift etc etc) we are building a Transmission test Rig. We started today on the Bare bones of the Frame Work.

 

And the plan..

We will be using a 3HP 2800 3 Phase motor which will be motor than plenty to spin the aa80e with no actually load…ie. the rear diff and wheels and car weight.

The 3phase motor will be controlled using a single phase to 3 phase digital inverter unit. This will give us full control of the motor speed and braking. In theory at 200hz we should see around 5000rpm at the motor, though 3500rpm is all we need for most testing.

Transcooler will be mounted on the test rig, and from the bench we will have our paddle controllers, selector mechanism, load and tps STIMulator and PC to monitor and edit Data (Megashift) from the Trans controller.

This will save a lot of development time and help iron out problems a lot faster than trying to do whilst in car.

so the basic idea is..

components should start arriving this week ;)
