The goal of this project was to design a dynamometer to test a driveline generator. Dynamometer component designs were created, analyzed and iterated until all function requirements were met. All components were designed with safety factors greater than two except the shaft, which had a safety factor or 1.282 in the keyways. Using Solidworks, each component was modeled and Finite Element Analysis was completed. Upon satisfactory completion of the design, component drawings were made for future manufacturing.
