Fuel consumption tests (NEDC Cycle - WLTP test)
dQdt – Mobile consumption measurement systems
The current lab test – called the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) – was designed in the 1980s. Due to evolutions in technology and driving conditions, it has become outdated today. The European Union has therefore developed a new test, called the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The EU automobile industry welcomes the shift to WLTP and has been contributing actively to the development of this new test cycle.
The pressure drop-free measurement principle of the dQ-sensors requires no pressure conditioning for sensor.
As a result, it can be easily integrated into the vehicle’s own fuel system and can be used for either the old and outdated New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) created in 1980s or the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle test Procedure (WLTP) that will test the Vehicle in real driving situations, and that will come into force in 2017.
This measurement system is highly dynamic and also stands out due to its constant readiness for measurement.
