Course content
Content of lectures: 1-2) Normalisation and standardisation - what the standards are, how they arise and why, their classification, examples 3-4) Measurements, metrology, measurement chains and data processing. Summary of knowledge from other subjects, practical examples. 5-6) Introductions into tests, distribution of tests, overview of tests at the manufacturer (demonstration during excursion), trends in testing. 7-8)Dynamic tests Resistance to vibrations in fuel/without fuel, resistance to shocks (acceleration), transport test, cyclical tests of valves, start/Stop 9-10) Static tests Pulling forces, in-line pump leakage tests, tests of valves (DBV/RSV), pump locking 11-12) Long-term tests Long-term test, non-controlled pumps, start/Stop, decos, hybrid, long-term test with a special fuel, corrosive, increased conductivity, pump overloading test, abrasive tests, dry run 13-14) Climatic tests Run of pumps at different temperatures / temperature cycling, delivery of fuel at a high temperature, delivery of fuel at a low temperature 15-16) Functional tests / others Dielectric strength / insulation test, reversed polarity, long-term/short-term overvoltage test, electromagnetic compatibility tests, radiation through air, radiation through wires, overvoltage phenomena, immunity, measurements of acceleration / vibrations / pressure pulsations, explosion test, visual test / analysis 17) Fuels - characteristics of various fuels and their testing Content of practicals: The programme follows up to the lecture topics and is focused on practical examples of testing with regard to laboratory equipment. 1) Application of standards, different concepts of company standards of various customers, examples 2) Measurement, metrology, measurement chains and data processing. Formation of various measurement chains (hydraulic, electric), data collection and assessment. 3-4) Dynamic tests Resistance to vibrations in fuel/without fuel, resistance to shocks (acceleration), transport test, cyclical tests of valves, start/Stop - practical activities of students in laboratories, test settings, outputs, reports 5-6) Static tests Pulling forces, in-line pump leakage tests, tests of valves (DBV/RSV), pump locking - practical activities of students in laboratories, test settings, outputs, reports 7-8) Long-term tests Long-term test, non-controlled pumps, start/Stop, decos, hybrid, long-term test with a special fuel, corrosive, increased conductivity, pump overloading test, abrasive tests, dry run - practical activities of students in laboratories, test settings, outputs, reports 9-10) Climatic tests Run of pumps at different temperatures / temperature cycling, delivery of fuel at a high temperature, delivery of fuel at a low temperature - practical activities of students in laboratories, test settings, outputs, reports 11-12) Functional tests / others Dielectric strength / insulation test, reversed polarity, long-term/short-term overvoltage test, electromagnetic compatibility tests, radiation through air, radiation through wires, overvoltage phenomena, immunity, measurements of acceleration / vibrations / pressure pulsations, explosion test, visual test / analysis - practical activities of students in laboratories, test settings, outputs, reports 13) Fuels - characteristics of various fuels and their testing - practical activities of students in laboratories, test settings, outputs, reports
