A very general question; open to all discussion, is about to be asked.
Is there a way to create a (chassis / engine / etc.) dynamometer that measures the power of a vehicle in nodes instead of a one off reading.
When I say nodes I mean, by applying a known load to a fixed speed and returning it to the previous... e.g.
10 hz -> 0 hz say takes a load of 10N
20hz -> 10 hz say takes another 15N
and from this you map the engine power by knowing the amount of energy required to decrease the speed to the previous node.
Any help would be greatfull.
