Successful bachelor thesis completed!
On Monday, March 8th, 2010, Prof. Dr. Richard Leiner from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Konstanz visited us. He was particularly interested in the bachelor’s thesis of his prospective student, which was carried out on site at HERZOG INTERTEC
Electrical Engineer Jürgen Hipp
on the subject:
Machine diagnostics on a variable-speed drive to detect bearing damage at an early stage.
Here, Mr. Jürgen Hipp first had to familiarize himself with the machine diagnosis and the generation of the excitation frequencies of an external engine test stand. This was followed by the digitization of analog measurement signals. Then, the theoretical excitation frequencies of gears, needle bearings and ball bearings were calculated and suitable hardware selected. The appropriate vibration measuring card was quickly found and a high-temperature acceleration sensor followed. Now it was time for the programming in LabVIEW, the sound and vibration analysis, the connection of the oil pressure sensor and the control of the oil pump. The programming of the digital inputs and outputs as well as the expansion of the test bench program followed.
Prof. Dr. Leiner enthusiastically accepted the very successfully completed work of his student Mr. Hipp and at the same time thanked the managing directors Ewald and Raphael Herzog for the highly interesting task provided, the use of which mainly benefits today’s modern engine mechanics.
As per professor’s request, HERZOG INTERTEC will make a contribution to the modern, practical equipment of the laboratories at the HTWG Konstanz and will specifically support the microcontrollers, LabVIEW and the well-known solar boat Korona and the hydrogen solar boat Solgenia on Lake Constance with a donation.
