In conjunction with the CT 159 test stand and the HM 365 load unit, the two-stroke petrol engine is highly suitable for use in teaching the fundamentals of engine functioning and measurement.
The engine used here is an air-cooled single-cylinder two-stroke petrol engine with a membrane carburettor. The engine is started by an electric motor mounted in the HM 365 unit. The air cooling is effected by a flywheel fan. The engine output is dissipated via a centrifugal clutch. The HM 365 load unit is coupled by way of a covered V-belt drive. Because of the high speed this engine is provided with a smaller pulley than other engines in the series.
The engine includes a sensor to measure the exhaust gas temperature. The sensor, ignition cut-off as well as air and fuel supply are connected to the CT 159 test stand.
The full load and partial load characteristic curves of the engine are plotted in experiments.
