Several of these test stands are being used by one of the largest manufacturers of aircraft engines in the world. The test stands have a broad power range across the speed of the system, delivering their full 391 HP of power from 9,000 RPM all the way up to their maximum speed of 28,000 RPM. This broad power curve allows the customer to test both aircraft traction motors (low speed, high torque) as well as aircraft starter-generators (high speed, less torque). These test stands utilize a liquid cooled motor, designed and manufactured by Burgi, as well as a Burgi Engineers proprietary gearbox design to increase the output speed, and a series of three spindles to extend the drivetrain into the customer’s test cell. The test stand is also equipped with a cooling system to supply the customer’s unit under test with cooling oil. Additionally these stands were designed to be whether proof as they are located outside, and incorporate a battery bank to power the entire test stand for 30 seconds in the event of facility power loss.
