Abstract:

This project investigates methods for calibrating and functional testing an Engine Vibration Measurement Equipment. The equipment uses accelerometers to measure vibrations on the JAS 39 Gripen aircraft engine to ensure that the engine is correctly installed. A model for emulating the electronic signals generated by the accelerometers was created in Simulink and different ways for utilizing the model as a part of a complete test system were examined. Upon examination of different calibration methods it was found that a complete test system needs to have the ability to both send electrical signals directly into the EVME as well as a way of testing the accelerometers mechanically. Both short- and long-term solutions fulfilling these requirements were prepared.
