Dynamometer Facility

Czero helps advance turbocharger technology—and the Fort Collins
smart grid

VanDyne SuperTurbo is developing a new turbocharger technology that will improve standard gasoline engine performance by 20-30%. VanDyne contracted Czero to design a 900 KW, two-engine test facility for durability testing of these new turbochargers.

Designing customized systems for engine performance measurement

Czero oversaw design of these and other aspects of the VanDyne test facility:

  • Synchronous machine specifications
  • Dynamometer and engine mounting
  • Fuel system
  • Cooling system
  • Driveshaft
  • Room sensors
  • Engine, dynamometer, and test facility controls

Leaping ahead: from idea to reality

Czero engineers accelerated VanDyne’s product development by expediting design of a state-of-the-art test facility, a mission-critical necessity for this fast-moving fuel-efficiency innovator.

Czero’s ability to work with our engineers in developing innovative, ground-breaking technology has been a great benefit to the SuperTurbo development. We have placed a lot of trust in Czero’s ability to deliver and have not been disappointed. They are a top-shelf organization. Tom Waldron – VP of Operations
