Dyno2 software is equipped with powerful project and runs database that can contain lots of information about your projects. Project can be activated, for creating new runs, with double click. New projects can be created from right click menu on project list.
Information visible in project table and PROJECT DATA tab can be customized. Visibility in table end editor can be toggled. You can enter a default value for new project and select your preferred unit. The decimal field defines how many decimal places for the value will be displayed. Negative decimals value will activate scientific notation.
Project fields that have special importance are:
|Vehicle ID||Basic identification for project. It is shown in title bar and default report.|
|Used for road simulation test.|
|Used for engine power correction calculation based on ambient conditions.|
|Eng. inertia||Inertia connected with engine rotating parts. It can be estimated from engine displacement by right clicking the field.|
|DT inertia||Inertia connected with drivetrain rotating parts – mainly wheels. It can be estimated from wheel diameter.|
|Loss factor||Percent of engine power that is lost due to gearbox efficiency. Suggested values:|
Manual gearbox: 3-8%
Hydrokinetic torque converter: 10-20%
Mechanical CVT gearbox: 7-13%
Every project contains its own runs. Runs can be analyzed with double click. Clicked runs appear in ANALYZE tab.
Runs are saved in files in /home/pi/.dyno2/runs directory. The run file contains all information required to open it on another device. The database contains only metadata required to organize your projects and runs.
Information visible for every run can be customized in similar way as for projects.
Here is an instruction video on how to create a new project and make measurement.
