About the Client
Client is globally identified for manufacturing of compressors. The Company is engaged in the design, manufacture, sale and service of a portfolio of industrial and commercial products as well.
Compressor Test facility ATE System was designed to test and provide calibration test certificate for their end user. The basic function of the ATE system is to acquire the data of different Subsystems of the Compressor. Test Facility, indicate the status of system safety Interlock and alarm signals, process parameters and allow the user to follow a predefined sequence of startup procedure & control the subsystems, during the process/test time and log the data. All these functions enable the user to improve the system operation, ease of functionality, control over the system, data acquisition and storage capability, safety, user administration and access, centralized monitoring and control capability.
The client, who is a compressor manufacturer needs to have their products tested after manufacturing and obtain corresponding Quality certificate.
Client requires a test facility which can be operated with different openings or capacities. Each opening was provided with defined flow meters, torque meters, suction & discharge pressure gauges, and vibration & sound sensors to test their compressor. The main objective of the test facility was.
- Provide the instrumentation for large numbers of channels
- Develop the control system to test DUT under different
- Design automated ATE software to carry out required test
for generation of calibration test certificates as per
- Design an acoustic chambers to attenuate noise level
during testing of rotary machines.
With the help of real time hardware, modular instruments and powerful ATE software, pump test facility system was design to provide the calibration certificate to clients end user. Real time control system was developed to acquire measurement data and to regulate field devices as per the system requirements. The system was designed to automate the entire testing facility for deterministic control with real-time data logging using real time hardware. FPGA based interlocking system to sense the safety interlocks status and generate the output. A CCTV system is installed for online viewing of test bed and the selection of appropriate sensors in the software.
GUI of Host Application software is designed to provide user with the features that will improve the control and ease of operation of the Compressor test facility. The software should allow the user to run the application in Auto/Manual mode, configure limits, set- points and acquisition parameters, control the subsystems by monitoring the process parameters and alarms, Check the runtime status and operating parameters of the various signals and subsystems continuously, monitor the character/behavior of the various analog channels on a graph, Conduct the experiments in an easy and safe automated manner, and do post experiment analysis. It has the facility to bypassing the specific data acquisition channels if they are not physically available.
The Compressor Test facility software generates the performance report and the sample calculation reports at the end of testing for the end user to see the exact calculations. The software compares the performance report with different compressor standards for accepted rejection criteria.
