Earth-moving machinery — Engine test code — Net power
|Publication Date:||1 November 2007|
|ICS Code (Earth-moving machinery):||53.100|
This International Standard specifies a method for testing the net power of internal combustion engines intended for the propulsion of earth-moving machinery as defined in ISO 6165. It is intended to provide a standardized means of reporting net power values to the end user of the earth-moving machines. It is applicable to
a) RIC spark- or compression-ignition
b) rotary piston engines.
These engines may be naturally aspirated or pressure-charged using either a mechanical pressure-charger or a turbocharger.
NOTE This International Standard is a companion standard to ISO 14396. The principle differences between the two is the fitting of certain cooling equipment and pressure-charging equipment auxiliaries (fans) for the test. It is possible to deduct the power requirements of equipment and auxiliaries from the engine ratings of ISO 14396 by test or calculation methods. See Annex A for the preferred calculation method for obtaining the net power ratings according to this International Standard. Both the test and the calculation method comply with this International Standard.
