Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A MISSION AND AND ENGINE OIL ANALYSIS BY WHICH TRANSMISSION AND ENGINE WEAROUT CAN BE PREDICTED BY MEASURING OIL TEMPERATURE, CAPACITANCE AND PRESENCE OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY TREATING THE OIL AS A LOSSY DIELECTRIC ACAND PLACING A TRANSDUCER IN THE OIL. BOTH CONDUCTANCE AND SUSCEPTANCE ON APPROPRIATE FREQUENCIES ARE MEASURED AND THEIR RATIO, THE DISSIPATION FACTOR, IS USED AS AN INDICATOROF THE CONDITION OF THE OIL. AS THE LEVEL OF METALLIC AND IONIZATION GROW THE DISSIPATION FACTOR INCREASES WHICH IS THEN CORRELATED WITH THE CONDITION OF THE ENGINE. THE IN VESTIGATION WILL INCLUDE PLACEMENT OF AN ANODE IN THE CAPACITANCE PROBE. THIS WILL ALLOW US TO CORRELCORRELATE THEPRESENCE OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID IONIZATION IN THE OIL. A LOW -POWER DIGITAL TRANSMITTER WILL SEND SIGNALS TO A NEARBY DEMODULATOR RECEIVER UNIT WHICH RECORDS AND DISPLAYS THE NECESSARY DATA. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE THE OPERATORS MASS TRANSIT SYSTEM AND OTHER ENGINES WITH AN ON-LINE SYSTEM THAT CONTINUOUSLY MONITORS THE CONDITION OF THEIR TRANSMISSIONS AND ENGINES. THIS WILL HELP REDUCE MAINTENANCE COSTS SIGNIFICANTLY.
