A split dynamometer, also known as a dual dynamometer or a split-load dynamometer, refers to a specialized piece of equipment used for measuring the power output of an engine or a motor. This device consists of two separate dynamometers, typically positioned on each output shaft of the engine or motor under analysis. By employing a split dynamometer, it becomes possible to measure and compare the individual power outputs of each shaft. This apparatus finds extensive application in automotive, aerospace, and industrial sectors for the precise assessment of engine performance. The split dynamometer plays a crucial role in experimental testing, research, and development activities, enabling engineers to gain deeper insights into the power distribution and efficiency of engines or machinery.
